Fat Blokes is a sort of dance show about flab, double chins and the men they are attached to – made by artist and fatso, Scottee, coming to HOME for a run of trail-blazer performances before heading to the Southbank Centre.
Exploring what those who you’d rather not sit next to on the bus think about their own bodies, Fat Blokes uncovers why fat men are never sexy but always funny, always the ‘before’ and never the ‘after’ shot. Prepare yourself for a show about pent up aggression, riot grrrl and the hokey cokey.
Directed by Scottee in collaboration with Lea Anderson. Made in collaboration with Lea Anderson, Unskinny Bop and five fat blokes who’ve never done this sort of thing before.
“Scottee’s work often comes in camouflage. Its flippancy conceals its fight. It’s how he reaches people.” – The Guardian
