SEPTEMBER 14TH 2017 8PM
Come join British-Chinese provocateur pop artist Le Fil as he, she or it explores a 24/7 world of gay-straight men, desire and objectification through a fusion of hip-thrusting, pounding music, twisted autobiography and gender-bending performance art.
Premiering at Hackney Showroom, this ‘pop-gig-with-extras’ opens it doors to cruising toilets, bad romances and the modern constructions of gender that package us up for consumption. Armed with killer hooks and queer looks, Le Fil is ready to smash gender stereotypes one song at a time.
Expect striking visuals, dancers and warped pop routines to a kaleidoscopic soundtrack of live music taken from Le Fil’s Pop Sculpture and Nightlife EPs that will leave you gagging for more.
Try before you buy folks, its open 24/7... how will you have yours?

'Future Is Now'
Le Fil is the new British-Chinese artist, performer and composer who should be perking up your attention right now. Hailing from Huddersfield, and residing in London - the androgynous artist released his debut EP 'Pop Sculpture' last year featuring six electro-industrial pop songs including 'Black' and ‘Future Is Now’.
Not only is Le Fil a talented singer songwriter, he is truly a hands on artist that constructs all the elements surrounding his music from directing music videos to making props and costumes for his photographs and shows - even including designing for famous clients like pop icon Lady Gaga and the English National Ballet.
With unique storytelling, impressive vocals and an energetic performance style - Le Fil is truly working his way up from the underground and creating an alluring buzz. Fil has already featured in Selfridges' 'Agender' campaign video, as well as being spotted by producer Frankmusik, who will produce the entire second EP.
With an irrepressible vision set on taking our sonic and cultural landscape into the future, we should all be keeping our eyes and ears on this exciting pop sculpture...
