The brilliantly entertaining filmmaker, writer and shock auteur supremo, John Waters is coming to New Zealand, for the first time, in late October to perform his glorious one man show This Filthy World for only two dates in Auckland and Wellington!
Described as a vaudeville act, This Filthy World celebrates the film career and obsessive tastes of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash”. Focusing on Waters’ early artistic influences, his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, and the extremes of the contemporary art world, this joyously devious monologue elevates all that is trashy in life into a call to arms to filth followers everywhere.
This Filthy World will also draw on material from Waters’ most recent book, Role Models, described as “a study in lunatic admiration, a tribute to self-acceptance and tolerance and a joyful and witty celebration of life,” (Sun Herald).
The Filthy Word is an essential experience for anyone interested in how not to make a movie, how to become famous (read infamous) and how to shock and make people laugh.
