THE SPILL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE IS AN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LIVE ART, ACTIVISM AND PERFORMANCE PRESENTING THE WORK OF EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
Dancing in roller skates and a deer head, being hunted by her stage hands or drowning in tomatoes, artist The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein doesn’t shy away from creating confrontational images with her own body.
In Splat! the self-titled ‘witch, womaniser, childbearer, superstar’ explodes notions of desire, domestication and victimisation in unexpected ways. Explicit and risk-taking, her performances are raw and exhilaratingly live.
This is the world premiere of The Famous’s new show, with a cast of collaborators including Hrafnhildur Benediktsdóttir and Krista Vuori. Expect delight, dismay, pleasure and panic. Come prepared for splash back!
