Pepi, supposedly the daughter-son of Ziggy Stardust and Divine, has unclear origins, some of the most trustful informations though tell about timeless unexplored worlds. Her-his contradictory artistic career, impregnated with grandiose shows and deep flops, follows faithfully her-his leitmotiv: “show you as you are, no more, no less.” She-he gives no interview and doesn’t talk willingly to strangers. Some say she-he doesn’t understand any language but love, as wonderful and cruel it can be.

Pepi is a cross-dressing character by Gonzalo H. Rodríguez, and a former member of the FREIraum Ensemble.
