Fat Blokes is a sort of dance show about flab, double chins and the men they are attached to – 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.

Event details

Director Scottee, choreographer Lea Anderson and Fat Blokes performers Asad, Gez, Sam and Joe discuss how the show was made and who it was made for. This is your chance to ask silly questions and buy the performers a drink.

This is fat rebellion.

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