A drag king punk gig about concrete architecture and idealism.
A dysto-utopian noise about The Man!
A no-wave musical about how we ended up in this mess!
Hosted by washed up architect/proto-god figure Archibald Tactful (2014 IdeasTap Underbelly winner Rachael Clerke) and accompanied by anti-virtuoso punk band The Great White Males – Cuncrete is a gratuitously sleazy and joyfully noisy critique of alpha-masculinity and the built environment. Expect original music, grotesque posturing, sharp suits and cement.
★★★★ The Stage
“Politically vital… somewhere between a howl of rage and a rallying cry” – Exeunt
Rachael Clerke is an award winning theatre-maker, satirist and punk singer. She tries to make work that is political and funny at the same time, and wants to make people swear, in a good way.
She is one half of performance duo Clerke and Joy, co-founder of the everchanging participatory punk event F*ck The House Band and a member of Interval, an artist collective and studio space above St Nicholas Market in Bristol.
Rachael once received a ‘review’ that read simply – “Performance Art? Either learn to paint or sculpt or fuck off”.
