Scottee returns to Home with a full show

This show is made by artist and forward facing fatso, Scottee, returning to HOME after performing Bravado as part of Orbit 2017.

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.

“Scottee’s work often comes in camouflage. Its flippancy conceals its fight. It’s how he reaches people.” – The Guardian

Scottee says: “Fat Blokes sees me taking my trademark mouthy and messy work kicking and screaming into the world of dance. It’s a riotous show about bad fatties, like me! A call to arms for those of us who don’t intend to diet despite television doctors telling us our fat bodies are embarrassing.

Fat Blokes is a fat rebellion to everything you hold so dear”.

Lea Anderson says: “It is fascinating to work with Scottee who has so much to say about fat male bodies and that I’m looking forward to working with a group of men who have such diverse performance experiences and exquisite silhouettes. I hope to have a chance to make something beautiful”
