About the Show Less...

The world premiere of The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein's new show. Read More >

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!
