Dickie Beau

Blackouts: Twilight of the Idols

‘Touching, bizarre and visually gorgeous’ Time Out

Directed by Jan Willem van den Bosch
Lighting design by Martin Langthorne

In Blackouts: Twilight of the Idols ‘Drag fabulist’ Dickie Beau conjures the spirits of celebrated Hollywood icons, leading audiences on a bewitching adventure as he channels the ghosts of his childhood idols.

Blackouts marks a significant development for Dickie’s trademark process of dissecting, then re-membering found sound including exclusive access to audio tapes of Marilyn Monroe's final interview, conducted by journalist Richard Meryman and published in LIFE magazine just two days before her death.

Dickie shape-shifts through a shadowy soundscape of lost souls, presenting a study of icons in exile from society and themselves, and the haunting impressions they’ve left behind.
