Reframing the myth of Narcissus for the YouTube generation, Retroflection is a sensual shape-shifting one-man show made up of many faces.
Drag Fabulist Dickie Beau is a London-based performance artist whose work is an avant-garde blend of cabaret, drag, music hall, theatre and clowning; merging the sensibility of contemporary culture with queer twists and informed echoes of the past.
In the Irish premiere of his acclaimed piece, this master performer reintegrates the role of the Chorus, gives body to the lost voice of Echo and delivers from the shadows what remains of a softly spoken, splintered soul.
What the critics thought:
“Sublime, funny, moving, tragic and darkly poignant, Dickie Beau breathes electrifying new life into an age-old art form. Modern, retro and utterly relevant to the ailments of today, he’s a star of the future.” Attitude Magazine
Phenomenal talent… A powerful and moving artist… breathtaking Time Out London
Superb. Astonishing technical competence and conceptual ambition The Guardian
