Stephen Quinn, Noel Donnellon & Luke Faulkner

From Monday September 6th, in line with government guidelines, all patrons must show proof of vaccination upon entering the cinema screen.

Presented at the IFI, a mere stone’s throw from the iconic Boilerhouse gay sauna, Shame // Less is a cosmic cruise anchored by performance artist Stefan Fae and figures of Dublin’s creative queer underbelly including Lady K, Vickey Curtis, Pradeep Mahadeshwar and Attracta Tension to name but a few in this horn of plenty.

In an Ireland that’s post-Marriage Equality, post-Repeal and a city engulfed in the power of the corporatocracy, what does it mean to be radically queer in this Brave New Éire? Shame // Less invites you to peer through the gloryhole and bear witness.

Part cabaret, part performance art and, impressively, a response to the study ‘Culture and Sexual Risk: An Ethnographic Analysis of Gay Male “Sexual Worlds” in Ireland Today’ (for real), Shame // Less is a queer concoction for all of your chosen family.

Screening as part of GAZE 2021, September 29th to October 3rd 2021.

69 mins, Ireland, 2021, Digital
