Blurring the lines between live art, dance, theatre and fine art, The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein explores representations of women, 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.

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'. Expect visual overload and risk-taking from this raw, timely and uncomfortably hilarious interdisciplinary performance.

Presented as part of Fierce Festival 2017

Created by The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein
Collaborators Krista Vuori and Brogan Davison
Designer David Curtis-Ring

Holstein’s shows are a riot of shameless showmanship and live-art provocation
