LIFE, ART AND LEIGH BOWERY
In Conversation with Boy George (International)
Boy George joins Australian cabaret star Paul Capsis and operatic diva Le Gateau Chocolate (La Soirée) for an intimate tribute to an avant garde 80s icon, Leigh Bowery.
A performance artist, fashion designer and club promoter, this Australian expat was at the centre of a new pansexual brand of expression that influenced generations of London and New York artists, from Vivienne Westwood and Michael Clark to Antony and the Johnsons.
Boy George himself recorded a 1995 tribute to Bowery, ‘Satan’s Butterfly Ball’, after the influential artist’s tragic death. Here he revisits the echoes and remembrances of this beloved and inspiring figure, in a unique testimonial to a true icon.
