Jean Paul Gaultier is set to shake up London this summer when his stunning creation, Fashion Freak Show - 50 years of pop culture through the eyes of fashion’s enfant terrible - this high-octane musical revue takes up residence at London’s iconic Roundhouse from Friday 15 July - Sunday 28 August 

From disco to funk, from pop to rock and new wave and punk, Fashion Freak Show has an explosive playlist of hits that have inspired the artist throughout his life.  

An  explosive combination of a revue and fashion show, it first premiered in Paris in 2019 at the legendary Folies Bergère followed by a run at the South Bank Centre; it now returns to London updated and reimagined complete with catwalk and cabaret style seating. 

In this extraordinary production, actors, dancers and circus artists take to the stage and play outlandish, passionate, larger than life, rude, sexy, sassy creatures and personalities all set against the backdrop of a giant video wall..  

From his childhood to his early career, from his greatest fashion shows to the wild nights in Le Palace or London, Jean Paul Gaultier shares his journal of the times and pays tribute to those who have inspired him in film (Pedro Almodovar, Luc Besson), music (Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Myléne Farmer) and dance (Régine Chopinot, Angelin Prejlocaj).  

In the show, conceived like a grand party, Jean Paul Gaultier will surprise us again. He has designed hundreds of new exclusive outfits, incorporated within an exuberant set – without forgetting to invite his most iconic creations!
