Unity Theatre: Dickie Beau – Lost in Trans

ntZodUxVhHbwjQBtPuKTRMBfqMeLX3vA9TpzHBQo2o86 November


Performance phenomenon and gender dis-illusionist, Dickie Beau takes inspiration from Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’ for his latest show, Lost in Trans, presenting a poetic performance of personal discovery and transformation. Reframing images from cultural antiquity, and casting the Cyclops as his mind’s eye, Dickie builds on his schtick of breathing new life into found sound, culminating in an unorthodox re-visioning of Echo, the Nymph who died of a broken heart and left only the sound of her voice behind. ‘Superb work, demonstrating astonishing technical competence and conceptual ambition.’ The Guardian. A Southbank Centre commission supported by Jardin d’Europe
