What do exotic and erotic Strip show performers do when not strutting their stuff in Las Vegas? Strut some more, of course.
The 96-seat Onyx Theatre in Las Vegas, housed in the back of a sex show in the Commercial Center, is a fitting space for a new show called “The Art of Prostitution “
However, “Prostitution,” created by Wassa Coulibaly, a dancer in Cirque du Soleil’s “Zumanity,” isn’t just about the physical aspects of the oldest profession.
Coulibaly, raised in a Muslim family in Senegal, says not all prostitution involves sex. She considers “any love relationship that isn’t unconditional love” to be prostitution.
“There’s so many type of prostitutes. Prostitution doesn’t just happen on the street corner, it happens in many forms. When something is repressed, sexuality come outs in a distorted way,” says Coulibaly.
The performers for the show come for a variety of other Strip show, with the play beginning after they Monday shows, usually at 1 a.m. on Tuesdays at the Onyx Theatre, inside The Rack, at 953 E. Sahara Ave., Unit 16. $20 admission. More info: www.onyxtheatre.com
