Blurring the lines between live art, dance, theatre and fine art, The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein interrogates representations of female subjectivity.

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.
