Homotopia, will be welcoming to Liverpool this November the American film maker, author, actor and cult icon John Waters at his only currently scheduled UK appearance in 2013. Artistic Director Gary Everett is delighted and said: “From modest beginnings in 2004 Homotopia has grown into an international flag-bearer for high quality queer culture consistently punching above our weight. We are very excited to bring an international star like John Waters to Liverpool for our big tenth birthday celebrations.”
Having confirmed his appearance at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on 8th November, John Waters said: Congratulations on 10 years of gay lunacy ! I can’t wait to see Liverpool, the town I’ve always wanted to come to but never have. I bet it’s as extreme as Baltimore!”
The creator of Hairspray and collaborator with, amongst others, Divine, Mink Stole, Johnny Depp, Kathleen Turner and Tab Hunter, will be performing his one man show ‘This Filthy World’. Focusing on his early negative artistic influences and 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.
Tickets for ‘This Filthy Word’ at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall are £20 or £26 and go on general sale Friday 17th May from (Box Office): 0151 709 3789
