Fat Blokes is a (sort of) dance show about flab, double chins and getting your kit off in public by artist and forward facing fatso, Scottee.
Fat Blokes uncovers why fat men are never sexy but always funny, always the ‘before’ but never the ‘after’ shot.
Made in collaboration with choreographer Lea Anderson and four fat blokes who’ve never done this sort of thing before.
Prepare yourself for a show about pent up aggression, riot grrrl and the hokey cokey.
This is fat rebellion.
Post-show Discussion: 15 Feb with Scottee and Louise McSharry
Dinner Debate: Body Positivity and Fatness

SCOTTEE is an artist and writer, working across theatre, fine art and installation.
In 2010, as an emerging artist he won the title of Time Out Performer of the Year, since then he has been creating provocative work for audiences across UK, Europe, Australia, Japan and the US.
His debut solo tour The Worst of Scottee won the prestigious Total Theatre Award in 2014. In 2016 he was included on Independent’s Rainbow List as one of Britain’s most influential LGBTQI+ people.
Scottee’s critically acclaimed Putting Words in Your Mouth uncovered a queer community turning to neo-nationalist groups and was named one of Matt Trueman’s top shows of 2017. This quickly followed sell-out tour and his first stage text Bravado exploring working class masculinity. Currently he is touring ‘a sort of dance show’ Fat Blokes across England, Scotland and Ireland.
Scottee is co-host on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends. His debut radio documentary My Big Fat Documentary was made BBC Radio 4’s Documentary of the Week. Scottee has since appeared on Front Row, BBC Radio 3’s The Verb & Free Thinking. In 2018 he made a short documentary for BBC Three on street abuse titled Fat & Fabulous and The Gamble for BBC Radio 4 on autobiographical art.
Scottee is not easily definable, his work is brash, political and will often purposefully leave you a bit annoyed, overwhelmed but never impartial.

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…Read More

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020 Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…Read More
