Synopsis

Jean Paul Gaultier in Conversation

The man behind the conical bustier: Jean Paul Gaultier reflects on his decades at the forefront of fashion and latest creation Fashion Freak Show in conversation with TV presenter Anita Rani.

From the beginning of his career, Gaultier wanted to show that beauty has many facets and can be found where we least expect it – for example, in an ordinary tin can, which he first transformed into a bracelet and later into the packaging for his hugely successful perfume.

In Fashion Freak Show, the designer shares memories from his extraordinary life and career in a spectacle where actors, dancers and circus artists play outlandish, passionate, larger-than-life, sexy, sassy creatures.

The part revue, part catwalk show takes an extravagant, yet tender, look at our times, inviting us into a world filled with excess, poetry and magic.

Throughout his career Gaultier has worked in dance, music and the cinema. His costumes for Madonna’s Blond Ambition tour have left an indelible imprint on popular culture.

Anita Rani is an RTS Award-winning presenter, one of the lead presenters on BBC1’s Countryfile and part of The One Show team.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext.
