Have you seen Pantopon Rose? The one woman show


@ICA, London.
Curator: Juliette Desorgues, Steve Cairns

'Have you seen Pantopon Rose?' is a performance by French artist Julie Béna written in three acts.

Currently being developed as a film, the work’s presentation as part of In formation speaks to the possibilities within public storytelling.


Taking its roots in theatre, antiquity, mythology, writing and nightlife, this performance focuses on one figure, Pantopon Rose, taken from the William Burroughs novel Naked Lunch. The character of Pantopon Rose only appears momentarily in the novel, yet through her own storytelling, Béna provides agency to an otherwise effaced fictitious female figure.
