Nicole and Jessica

Garnett Hodgins

1995, 04:15 minutes, colour, Italian & English


Nicole & Jessica is not just another glitzy, meaningless drag show - but, a serious exploration of gender and sexual identities: Two twelve year old girls assume the roles of Violetta and Alfredo in Verdi's opera 'La Traviatta'. Using queer cult pomp, where cross-dressing in high drag, lip syncing, and waking the dead are in order, Joan of Arc and St. Sebastian come to life.
