Cabaret at the Apple Cart Festival

Faces familiar and new at the Apple Cart Cabaret stage, presented by Lisa (Rude Grrl) Lee. Shame about the rain, but the performances (including Dickie Beau’s take on Kenneth Williams (above)) shone regardless.

BURN at the BFI

Time Out magazine’s cabaret editor Ben Walters’ showcase of recent moving-image-based works by UK cabaret stars at the BFI, followed by an afterparty hosted by the genteel folk from Gutterslut in the Blue Room. Dickie Beau (above), A Man to Pet and Miss Annabel Sings performed live, with videos by Scottee, Justin Bond, David Hoyle and Bourgeois & Maurice among others.

Dickie Beau — RETROFLECTIVE

Dickie’s new show, at the RVT for two nights only (and yes, you’ve missed them both). It’s a must-see, so get along to Bistrotheque on 5th September to do just that. Pix here.

Film Noir 21st August

Featuring Helen Noir and Ben Pistor downstairs, with A Man To Pet, Dickie Beau and Nando Messias upstairs, and a literally pop-up performance by Ms Noir. Pix here.

Film Noir at Dalston Superstore

The Film Noir crew took over both floors of the Superstore on the hottest Friday night of the year. Severino’s and Helen Noir’s back-to-back sets of take-no-prisoners, hands-in-the-air afterhours disco and electro set the basement on fire. Fabulous. Pix here.

Dickie Beau/Blackout @ the Royal Vauxhall Tavern

If you’ve been following my photos for a while, you’ll know how much I love Dickie’s work. He performed the latest of his ‘Blackouts’ at Duckie last Saturday night, Photos here. He is performing all three tableaux/performance on 11 June. Go.

Out Late at Various Voices, Southbank

Dickie Beau, Helen Noir, Nando Messias, Ingenue St. John & A Man Da Pet took over the Front Room at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Friday night, for an evening of music, video and performance as part of the Various Voices 09 festival. Pix here…
