Flesh Mob presents the world premiere of Miseducated, an interdisciplinary dance-theatre work exploring the sensitive and fertile subject matter of Sex Ed. Using recordings and transcripts of interviews conducted with dozens of survivors of Americas sexual education system, Miseducated transforms this verbatim text into a dynamic and provocative physical performance.

Flesh Mob is a performance collective exploring the boundaries of movement, storytelling, documents, and space. Made up of theatre artist/physical comedian Ben Gorodetsky, burlesque artist Peekaboo Pointe, and dancer/writer Hilary Preston, Flesh Mob's work addresses topics of sex, identity and education. The core members of Flesh Mob met as students in the Performance and Interactive Media Arts program at CUNY. Individually they have been presented and/or commissioned by Movement Research at Judson Church, The Wild Project, Slipper Room, Duane Park, Bizarre, Chinook, Gas Station Arts Centre, Chutzpah, Mile Zero Dance, Rapid Fire Theatre, Bad Dog, and SVA. They have worked with and for other artists such as Taylor Mac, Gesel Mason, Brian Webb, Lin Snelling and GWAR.

Miseducated also features an original score by vocalist and composer Chanan Ben Simon (Israel), text and performance collaboration by Emily Twines (USA), and an ensemble of diverse burlesque and theatre performers from NYC.Miseducated:  An Oral History of Sexual (Mis)Education.
