CULTUREMART 2014: GENET PORNO Yvan Greenberg & Laboratory Theater

Funding

GENET PORNO has been developed in part through an in-progress presentation by Dixon Place, September 2010.

About the show

GENET PORNO is based on Jean Genet’s 1943 novel, Our Lady of the Flowers, and follows the loves and betrayals of a cross-dressing gay prostitute named Divine. Divine’s story is staged within the production of a present-day gay porn video, incorporating narrative elements from the confessional videoblog of a real-life porn star. Their stories merge in an “impossible ballet” as GENET PORNO explores our contemporary culture of narcissism and the consequences that result from blurring our public and private lives.
