Neil Bartlett: Pedagogue

Stuart Marshall

1988, 11:00 minutes


Performance artist Neil Bartlett, here portraying a school lecturer, betrays his sexual orientation when, in an interview conducted by Stuart Marshall, he is asked to describe the contents of his briefcase. With understated humour and a touch of burlesque, interviews with his students expose the influence of Bartlett on their own sexuality. Homosexuality is revealed as truly contagious and runs rampant through the student population and out into their community.
