Inclusive performance art company BUZZCUT continue their run of autumn shows while preparing for their annual festival in Govan next spring.
Their DOUBLE THRILLS monthly performance programme continues with a night of queer comedy performances at the CCA on Wednesday 16th November.
Glasgow’s own Eilidh MacAskill, a performance artist whose work explores gender, sexuality, queerness and difference, will be performing her show “STUD”.
In this hilarious queer solo show, MacAskill bares all to swagger through masculinity, machismo and misogyny in a fully-frontal, yet thoughtful meditation inspired by Freud’s theories of sexuality and how they continue to influence us today.
“A stripped back show for anyone who likes their psychoanalysis heteronormative and their cowboys in the buff,” “STUD” is not to be missed.”
You can also catch “Letters to Windsor House” by Sh!t Theatre on the night, which was commissioned by Harlow Playhouse, developed supported by Arts Council England and associate artists of Camden People’s Theatre.
Dubbed the show for ‘Generation Rent’, the award winning duo behind Sh!t Theatre (Rebecca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole, who have lived and worked together for five-and-a-half years) work politics, song, dodgy landlords, detective work, property magnets and a loophole in the Postal Services Act into the “poten
tially felonious hour”.
DOUBLE THRILLS was originally scheduled to kick off with “Vesper Time,” a performance by Stacy Makishi, a Hawaiian-born London-based artist whose work is interdisciplinary in scope and includes performance film, installation and visual art. However, due to a family emergency, Stacy is no longer able to perform at this event.
BUZZCUT is an artist-led performance festival that takes place every spring, while throughout the year they put on performances in collaboration with other organisations and artists, like “Ultimate Dancer” by performance artist Daniel Oliver at CCA on 14th December.
The emphasis is on creating experiences where “artists and audiences can experiment with live performance in an accessible, community-focused way.”
The next festival takes place between Wednesday 5th and Sunday 9th April 2017, but DOUBLE THRILLS will certainly appease your appetite until then.
Applications for next year’s BUZZCUT Festival are due by 4 December, if you are interested in submitting work or ideas check out their call out for applications here.
The evening begins at 7pm, tickets are £8 (£6 concession) and can purchased here.
