A satirical drag eulogy for a world past its use-by-date.
Tonight! Somewhere in a great European megacity, somewhere on the cusp of a new era, a middle-aged architect hosts the last ever episode of life-as-we-know-it. And let’s face it: when it comes down to it, it’s just portland cement, water, aggregate, air and the proletariat vs. The Man.
Hosted by washed-up default man/proto-god figure Archibald Tactful, and accompanied by anti-virtuoso drag king punk house band The Great White Males, Cuncrete is a gratuitously sleazy and joyfully noisy critique of alpha-masculinity and the built environment.
Audience feedback: “Eric Pickles meets Pussy Riot. Phenomenal polemic against penis-propelled planning”, “Like a concrete kiss”, and “More performance like this please: louder, louder, louder.”
Cuncrete (previously titled Beton Brute) was last performed at CPT to sold-out audiences in October 2015.
