24/7

Le Fil 

www.lefil.co.uk

Come join Le Fil as he explores a world of gay-straight men, desire and objectification through a fusion of hip thrusting live music, comedy, twisted autobiography and gender-bending performance art.  This ‘pop-gig-with-extras’ opens its doors to cruising toilets, bad romances and racial fetishisation while exploring the modern constructions of gender that packages us up for consumption. Think Christeene meets Kylie meets Lucy Liu!  Expect striking visuals, comedy, dancers and warped pop routines to a kaleidoscopic soundtrack of music from the Pop Sculpture and Nightlife EPs, smashing gender stereotypes one song at a time.

Try before you buy folks, it’s open 24/7… how will you have yours?

Le Fil is an independent British-Chinese androgynous male multimedia provocateur pop artist and singer based in London. As both sculptor and sculpture, Le Fil is constantly transforming; using his body and art to challenge notions of gender and identity. With a creative background that fuses glossy pop songwriting, ceramic sculpture, fashion styling to underground live art – Le Fil straddles the worlds of music, art and now, theatre, in order to present touching and personal artistic statements. Le Fil has performed at Hackney Showroom, Royal Vauxhall Tavern and The Glory and featured in Attitude, QX, Dazed, i-D and Gay Times.
