LONDON, Rupert Street: ROSE. Music by Cecilia Lopez and Kraus
Rose and I met accidentally, when I was just up to open my front door after a long shooting day. It turned out she is my neighbour and a performance artist in the “Theatre of Varieties” around our corner in Soho. Travelling the stages between New York and London, she always found a few minutes to shoot with me right before, after or in between a show – no matter if it was 11pm or 4am. By Saskia Reis

Introduction from Nilgin Yusuf, Graduate School Programme Director in Media and Communications at London College of Fashion: "This video portrait features Rose, a transgender performance artist in Soho and is one of the many video portraits made by the filmmaker for her streetstyle blog THE LOVESTREET. Intimacy and authenticity characterise the filmmaking technique that attempts to penetrate the mask and reveal something of the individual beneath the construct and costume."
