The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein – Notorious
The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein plunges into the ghostly underworld of popular culture, examining the myth of Medusa, Nicki Minaj and her own legendary self(ie), to interrogate pop culture’s take on the female monster, blurring the lines between live art, dance and theatre.
A pioneer in the field of performance and live art, Holstein’s irreverent blend of music, dance and witch-bitch ritual searches for redemption in the face of promiscuity. Combining pop culture with striking physically embodied visuals, The Famous continues to take risks with this new interdisciplinary performance following on from Splat! which sold out at the Barbican in 2013.
