GENET PORNO Yvan Greenberg / Laboratory Theater


GENET PORNO is being developed and produced as part of the HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP), with additional support provided by the Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation, Axe-Houghton Foundation, and Mertz Gilmore Late Stage Production Fund.

GENET PORNO ran from September 9-26, 2015 in the Dorothy B. Williams Theatre.

About the show

Love and betrayal are no strangers to Divine, the cross-dressing gay prostitute at the heart of Jean Genet’s 1943 novel, Our Lady of the Flowers. Her story of forsaken desire collides with the 21st century confessional video blog of a real-life gay porn star in GENET PORNO. The psychosexual melodrama exposes our contemporary culture of narcissism and the consequences of blurring our public and private lives in an epic emotional journey from light into darkness.
