Water’s rapid-fire, one-man, spoken word “vaudeville” act celebrates the film career and joyously appalling taste of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash.” It is updated and expanded from the original film version that enjoyed critical success at the Edinburgh, Toronto, and Berlin Film Festivals. This performance focuses on Waters’ early negative artistic influences; his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, the extremes of the art world, Catholicism and sexual deviancy; and a love of reading.
