Below, the two collaborators further explore what it takes to bring the quirky sex lives of animals out of the bedroom and onto the stage.
Q: Do you have a desire to push the boundaries of what an audience expects from a stage show?
Isabella Rossellini: I wanted the element of surprise, but not of shock. I see myself as a clown, as an entertainer. Basically, this is what I was trying to reach: to entertain people for an hour and fifteen minutes. And if they go away and say, “Oh, well, I learned something also, and that was interesting,” that’s even better. That’s the cherry on the cake. But we didn’t want to be controversial.
Isabella Rossellini tapped famed theater director Muriel Mayette to help translate her wild web series into a one-woman show for Green Porno: Live on Stage. Mayette gives us the scoop on guiding the production, falling in love with Isabella and rising through the ranks of France’s most prestigious theater company.

The (UK) Guardian is abuzz over Isabella Rossellini’s latest venture into the animal kingdom, a series of videos for Burt’s Bees that chronicle, in gory detail, the fascinating and fragile life of one of our primary pollinators.
Todd Akin made a simple mistake. When he said “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” he was obviously referring to ducks. And come on, who hasn’t on occasion confused the human female reproductive system with that of a duck?
It turns out we’re not the only people who like to learn about sex in the animal kingdom from our pal Isabella Rossellini. They doyenne of GREEN PORNO and SEDUCE ME recently teamed up with Burt’s Bees to get to the bottom of how their products are made (hint…bees doing it has a lot to do with that lip balm you’re addicted to).

Crossing an iconic actress, who has always fallen far outside the Hollywood norm, with the concept of animal mating habits sounds like tricky business. But like most genius things in this world, on paper they may first seem strange. Unimaginable. Downright odd.
And that was what I thought when I first heard of GREEN PORNO, Isabella Rossellini’s opus of animal sex shorts. Since renamed SEDUCE ME, a much more PG choice, nothing has changed. It is still a wonderful and educational trip into biology as art. Rossellini deadpans as a spider or a deer and even tackles Noah and his arc in the new season, premiering today. And while I adore the simplicity of the paper costumes and sets and laugh at Isabella’s spot-on acting (not too serious, but serious enough for, you know, a biology lesson), there is one thing I am super excited about in this season: it got really queer!
Libidinous deer, kinky dolphins and gay guests on Noah’s Ark are among the creatures revealing their carnal cravings as we unveil five new episodes of GREEN PORNO: SEDUCE ME Isabella Rossellini’s Webby award-winning and critically acclaimed online short film series about sex and procreation in the animal kingdom. The films debut right here on sundancechannel.com/greenporno on November 23rd. They will be available via video-on-demand on December 8th and will air on Sundance Channel on December 8th at 8pm.
