Part of Take Me Somewhere
‘Holstein’s shows are a riot of shameless showmanship and live-art provocation’ - Time Out
‘I’ll be ResurrecDEAD as your ultimate fantasy – a sexy dead virgin’ - The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein
Blurring the lines between live art, dance, theatre and fine art, 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), Notorious examines pop culture’s take on the female monster.
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.
