Sex and Consequences starring Isabella Rossellini


March 5, 2021 | 8:00PM | Virtual Stream Fundraiser | Starting $10

SEX & CONSEQUENCES is a 40-minute comical but scientifically accurate show on biodiversity and the multiple ways animals reproduce and have “babies.” It will be followed by a 20-minute Q+A with the viewers.

The show is a first attempt to reach a live audience even under Covid-19. In spite of this challenging circumstance (or maybe thanks to it) Isabella, with the complicity of Paul Magid, will attempt to find a new way to re-create the theater experience. The very human wish to be together and laugh is the engine for this creative attempt.

Sex & Consequences will be streaming live from Isabella’s Mama Farm on Long Island where she keeps numerous animals. The show will also include her videos from her award-winning series of shorts, Green Porno, Seduce Me and Mammas.

Recommended for mature audiences.

HPAC is honored to present Isabella Rossellini’s Sex and Consequences with our conservation partner Wildlife Conservation Society. Sex and Consequences kicks off HPAC Connects new 2021 program NATURECULTURES; a series of classes, talks and panels focusing on ecology including family Hula classes, WCS Rockies programs and The Indigenous Women’s Voices Summit.
