Storytelling through performance – Boyfriend and her art
With her signature hair rollers, vintage wardrobe and enormous glasses, Boyfriend’s shows are not to be missed. This talented performer fell in love with rap when she realised how many words she could put into a song and how it would enable her to tell a story without being long-winded. Her story revolves around the trials and tribulations of what is takes to look "womanly" in this ever-changing world. Boyfriend is a feminist who takes issue with the 1950s idea of women staying at home, looking good and cleaning the house, and yet she borrows this retro look for her onstage presence, using the 1950s style as a stark contrast to the content of her songs. While she has been drawn to rap, Boyfriend is against being confined by the restrictions of a genre – she uses it as a means to an end, breaking away from her ultra-conservative upbringing and telling her story with adult-rated lyrics and live performances that border on burlesque. Make sure you get your Boyfriend tickets on StubHub now, and remember you can also sell tickets on this site if you find you just can’t make the show.
Searching for identity: who do we think we are?
While working in the world of arts education in New Orleans after graduating from UCLA, Boyfriend inadvertently discovered she had a natural talent – the ability to rap. After having been brought up in a very conservative environment in Nashville, Boyfriend found that rapping was an art form that allowed her to start rebelling against the confines of her upbringing in an attempt to establish an identity. Her lyrics ask, and try to answer, questions about who we think we are, why we succumb to the pressures of social norms and how we can stand up for what we believe in while trying to make the world a better place. Her stage performances, complete with backing dancers, are extravagant and memorable. Don’t miss this chance to see Boyfriend live on stage.
