Blurring the lines between live art, dance, theatre and fine art, The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein interrogates the problematics of mediated identity and a contemporary feminism obfuscated by pop culture. In this irreverent phenomenon of music, dance and “witch-bitch” ritual, The Famous plunges into the ghostly underworld of popular culture. 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.
