Big Gay Disco Bike is exactly what it sounds like, a feel good pop-up big gay disco performed on a bike. Join cabaret superstar, vocal powerhouse, and overwhelmingly modest (and not at all delusional) drag icon in the making, Fatt Butcher on the golden disco bike as we bring the D-I-S-C-O directly to you. Because babes, anywhere can be a dance floor!
BGDB is a small-scale intervention with large scale impact transforming public spaces, festival sites, and the open road into an interactive disco with live music, dancing, comedy, and a big dose of glamour.
Inspired by the viral videos of lockdown street workouts, doorstep concerts, and apartment building balcony singing, BGDB will create socially distant opportunities for communities to come together, celebrate, and a have a dance (to a top-drawer camp disco soundtrack). The work is concerned with how we can transform public spaces into sites of joy and celebration, utilising the potential of queer joy as an act of resistance in the current climate.
The R&D for Big Gay Disco Bike was supported by Blueprint: Without Walls R&D Investment Fund and Birmingham Hippodrome Festivals.
