Taboo Story

Taboo is a musical portrait of a brief but remarkable era--London in the early 1980's. An ever-shifting time that sparked a rebellion among the youth that found its expression in flamboyant fashion and decadent nightlife. These kids were "the New Romantics"--leaders of an unofficial movement that left a lasting influence on music and fashion. Taboo focuses on two young men--Leigh Bowery, a brilliant, anarchic performance artist/designer and George O'Dowd, a young, rough-edged boy who arrives in London and--once swept up into an exciting artistic climate--becomes the surprising crossover star of the scene as Boy George. Both men's stories are played out against the fantastic background of Taboo, the club that had come to symbolize the mad excess and decadent fun of 1980's London.
