Scottee: Fat Blokes
Fat Blokes is a sort of dance show about flab, double chins and getting your kit off in public - made by artist and forward facing fatso, Scottee.
Fat Blokes uncovers why fat men are never sexy but are always funny, always the ‘before’ but never the ‘after’ shot.
Made in collaboration with 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.
“Scottee’s work often comes in camouflage. Its flippancy conceals its fight. It’s how he reaches people.” – The Guardian
A post show discussion with Scottee and Dr Charlotte Cooper will take place after the performance for ticket holders.
Charlotte Cooper is a psychotherapist and interdisciplinary artist engaged primarily with performance and publishing, particularly dance, zines and memoir. Her decades-long work on fat defies categorisation or assimilation and her latest book on the subject, Fat Activism: A Radical Social Movement, is available through the usual channels.
