Third-gendered, fallen Catholic, ex-fashion model La John Joseph invites you to her raucously political and accidentally profound retrospectacle. He combines song, vaudeville, proselytising, striptease and postmodern philosophy in an exhilarating collage which explores intersections between faith, gender, class and identity, and tells the true story of her journey from the council estates of Bootle to the catwalks of Paris and a degree from Berkeley, via the strip clubs of New York and some complex negotiations with faith.
Raucously political and accidentally profound, this is her frank and almost charming autobiography.Featuring songs from Patti Smith to Guns N’ Roses, Cole Porter to Leonard Cohen.
Plays as part of a double bill alongside Illusions by Ivan Viripaev
