By on March 28, 2017

JT LeRoy was the young author the genius with fluid gender identity who seduced and touched the whole world. With its supposedly autobiographical books about a hard upbringing, physical and sexual abuse, became the 20-year-old a literary rock star who was hailed by everyone from Bono to Courtney Love.

In Stockholm did the star a mythical visit in 2002. Everyone wanted to meet JT – hen that was our evidence that it actually can be such a thing as a happy ending. But the story of Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy would prove to be much more complicated than anyone could have imagined …

In the performance Jeremiah Terminator is woven documentary interviews with people from Stockholm queer community, together with a physical interpretation of JT Leroy’s various personas. It is an evocative piece of pop history about the identity and artistry, on the border between dreams and reality.
