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, Dickie Beau: Unplugged, 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…
“Superb work… demonstrating astonishing technical competence and conceptual ambition.” The Guardian
