SONIA SEGURA AND PEDRO GUTIERREZ REENACT A SCENE FROM THE PLAY "XXX" AT
STUDIOS IN LONDON.
Sonia Segura (L) as Eugenie and Pedro Gutierrez (R) as Dolmance reenact
a scene from the play "XXX" at the Riverside Studios in London, April
23, 2003. The play, performed by Spain's La Fura Dels Baus theatre
company, opened on Tuesday for a four-week run in London and is based
on the 1795 novel "Philosophy in the Bedroom" by the Marquis de Sade.
During the two-hour show directed by Alex Olle and Carlos Padrissa,
naked actors and actresses indulge in full sexual intercourse, or at
least so it seems, through the clever use of prosthetics and film clips
at critical moments. Each night a member of the audience, who has
submitted a sexual fantasy to the company's website gets to perform it
live on stage. REUTERS/Peter Macdiarmid
