CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS: DAILY LIVESTREAM SESSIONS
It’s the winter of 2010. Nighttime. Héloïse Letissier is walking in London. Totally lost. She’s at a turning point of her life but doesn’t yet know it, and when she pushes open the door of an underworld bar in Soho called Madame Jojo’s she feels that she’s found her safe haven. She comes here every night, week after week. Alone at a table, she sits endlessly fascinated by the untamed freedom of the drag queens who perform upon the JoJo’s stage. Soon, three queens take notice of her silent presence, and a connection is born between them, a solid and heartfelt link. You don’t enter Madame Jojo’s by chance. You come here to be yourself, at last. She tells the queens that she is French and studies literature and theatre, but speaks to them of her frustration too. She writes (but all she really does is fill pages), plays some piano (but classical music suffocates her) and can’t seem to recover from a love affair that almost destroyed her. What the queens will tell her during these nights, she’ll cherish like a talisman: sometimes people must invent themselves. You don’t get the chance to live twice. And thus, Christine And The Queens is born.
