2018 marks 10 years of survival! A decade of making it up as I go along!
To celebrate getting this far, remembering a body of work that includes performance, live art, cabaret, nightclubs, pop ups, knees ups, theatre shows, projects, fine art, public artworks and international touring! My gang, collaborators and I have some very exciting things planned under the banner of Scottee 10!
The first Scottee 10 project is a collaboration with Live Art Development Agency (LADA) on two publications! The first is a book, I Made It is a collection of all my past work into a not-so-neat package for bookshelves and coffee tables across the world. Full of recollections, dialogue and archive material and interruptions from me, my collaborators and the very brilliant editor, Professor Jen Harvie!
The second publication is a free zine, The Outsiders Handbook for queer, trans and questioning teenagers - a survival guide for figuring out a world beyond mainstream cultures and imposed heteronormative values!
To launch both publications LADA and I are hosting a retrospective of my cabaret and short performance work at my beloved Roundhouse in early September!
I’m looking for anyone who can remember my cabaret turns to perform just one piece at this event!
