Scottee – Bravado
Scottee grew up around strong, brave and violent men and boys. Bravado is his memoir of working class masculinity from 1991 to 1999 as seen by a sheep in wolf’s clothing.
Bravado explores the graphic nature of maleness and the extent it will go to succeed. This show is not for the weak hearted – it includes graphic accounts of violence, abuse, assault and sex.
Scottee's work is often about outsiderness; race, sexuality, class, age and gender, creating spaces where the perceived underdog is celebrated. In 2010 Scottee won the title of Time Out Performer of the Year and in 2015 he was included on Independent's Rainbow List as one of Britain's most influential LGBTQI+ people.
'Bravado is an astonishing show. It’s an open wound that bleeds painful truths ...an unsparing dissection of male identity – of its tribalism, insecurity and oppression.' The Stage
