Notorious

Notorious

Blurring the lines between live art, dance, theatre and fine art, The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein interrogates representations of female subjectivity, looking at ways in which social media and consumerism have redefined how we relate to the female body, one’s ‘true self’ and public shaming.

Overview

In this irreverent phenomenon of music, dance and ‘witch-bitch’ ritual, The Famous plunges into the ghostly underworld of popular culture, seeking, as she puts it, ‘the real me, the pure me, behind this soiled shroud of promiscuity.’

Pulling from the myth of Medusa, Nicki Minaj and her own legendary self(ie), The Famous examines pop culture’s take on the ‘female monster’. She reveals, ‘I’ll be ResurrecDEAD as your ultimate fantasy – a horny dead virgin.’ Expect visual overload and risk-taking from this raw, timely and uncomfortably hilarious interdisciplinary performance, which follows on from the sell-out Splat! seen at the Barbican in 2013.

Age guidance 16+ (contains adult themes and nudity)
