Live Collision International Festival presents a double bill of Stud (Eilidh MacAskill) and Dickie Beau: Unplugged (Dickie Beau)
Tell me about it, Stud.
Well, Dr Freud tells me I am missing something and I think he’s right.
He tells me that until I get over it and turn my desire for that missing thing into the desire for a baby, I’m going to be in deep shit.
He also tells me he doesn’t really get chicks…
Stud is a new work loosely engaging with the legacy and interruption of Sigmund Freud’s theories on child development and sexual psychology of women.
It’s also about a little girl called Tom and a talking horse.
“A fully-frontal assault … hilarious and whimsical … cogent and provocative”
Mary Brennan, The Herald
Dickie Beau: Unplugged
Drag fabulist and lip-synch maestro Dickie Beau has made his name channelling the voices of others, from Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe to Francis Bacon and Kenneth Williams.
Emerging from London’s drag scene, and shapeshifting his way across multiple disciplines, Dickie has taken the art of lip-synching out of nightclubs and into hitherto uncharted territory.
He was winner of Best Alternative Performer at the London Cabaret Awards 2012, received a Jardin d’Europe Contemporary Dance award in 2013, and was recipient of the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award in 2014.
In an animated live art lecture exclusive to Live Collision, Dickie takes an unheard of step to speak in his own voice and tell the story of how his love affair with found sound began; how it speaks not only to, but also for, him; and reveals how there is more to this lip-synching lark than meets the eye…
