Paris is Burning
Fri, Jan 25, 2013 ~ Sun, Jan 27, 2013Times:
ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents: Paris is Burning. In this unflinching documentary, the fashion-obsessed originators of New York City's famous "drag balls" are interviewed and intimately examined to paint a portrait of the niche phenomenon. The history of these outlandish evenings of gaudiness, cross-dressing and overall pride proves to be a fascinating one--as the community learns to harness the bawdy celebration with terms of personal expression and identity exploration. The allure of high fashion, status and wealth tempts and entices members of this eccentric grouping, challenging their expressions not only of themselves, but also of their love.
