Recently, she has turned her talents to the sexual in her show ‘Green Porno’, which is not an eco-friendly sex tape but a hilarious and bizarre series of explanations of the mating habits of animals. The show is a series of short episodes, each of which explores the behaviour of a different species, narrated and acted out by Rossellini herself, who appears in a series of costumes, many of which are made of paper and all of which are totally charming. The series was at first merely a humorous way for Rossellini to educate people about a subject about which she is passionate and studied at university, but soon she realised that there was an important moral behind the behaviours she was discussing. Many of the animals featured in ‘Green Porno’ are hermaphroditic, homosexual or otherwise more complex than the traditional ‘male + female = baby’ model. Rossellini also featured an entire episode on the subject, proving that homosexuality is not, as some claim, ‘unnatural’, at least in the animal kingdom.

The actress will be bringing this fascinating mixture of humour, peculiarity and biology to the Perth Concert Hall on March 19th, in a one woman show of the same name. The full length show is reportedly part-lecture, part pantomime, which Rossellini bringing her extensive knowledge of animal mating to life with some of the show’s visually delightful and strangely comical props and costumes. Online, in her book or the one woman show, behold the proportionally enormous penis of the barnacle, the labyrinthine vagina of the humble duck, and the diverse range of sexual activity exhibited by dolphins.

‘Green Porno’ is on at Wednesday the 19th of March at Perth Concert Hall.
