We are excited to announce that performance artist Dickie Beau (dickiebeau.com) will be returning to Contact in June with ‘Lost in Trans-‘. Inspired by Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’, Dickie Beau reframes images from cultural antiquity and casts the Cyclops as his mind’s eye in a performance that culminates in an unorthodox re-visioning of Echo, the Nymph who died of a broken heart and left only the sound of her voice behind. ‘Lost in Trans-‘ continues Dickie Beau’s commitment to breathing new life into found sound, reworking the drag tradition of lip synching by using complex spoken word texts and multimedia.
This performance is being presented at Contact in association with Tim Whitehead. It runs from Thursday 6 June – Saturday 8 June; each performance begins at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 (£6 concessions).
ADVANCE BOOKING IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Booking is via 01612740600 or online at http://contactmcr.com/whats-on/1220-dickie-beau-lost-in-trans-/.
