The Annual Festival of Masculinity will be held on Saturday 5 July 2008 9pm – 4am at The Coronet 28 New Kent Road, SE1 Elephant & Castle tube.
Duckie Gets Macho
7 rooms - 30 stalls - 50 artists - 2,000 punters
On Gay Pride night 2008 it’s time to make men pay. Collect your wad of ‘nine bob notes’ on the door and spend them in the market place as Duckie turns consumers into real men.
Featuring dozens of interactive installations that test your masculinity.
Effeminate homosexuals will be barred and women vaguely tolerated as designer Robin Whitmore turns The Coronet into an interactive nightclub-theatre with the aesthetics of a giant mini-cab office: sticky, brown, stained, a bit pongy and distinctly lacking a feminine touch.
Tickets £15 on the door on the night or in advance in person from The Retro Bar (2 George Court, off The Strand, WC2)
Starring Amy Lamé, Justin Bond, Christopher Green, Marisa Carnesky, Scottee, Helen Plewis, Bearlesque, Timberlina, Jack, Susannah Hewlett, Hannah Eaton, Russell Harris, Charlie Pulford, Laura Bridgeman, Paola Cavallin, Dominic Johnson, Owen Parry, Andrew Mitchelson, Matthew Robins, Tim Spooner, Anthony Schrag, Pau Ros, Tom McLeod, Dicky Eton, Daniel Martin, Steven Whinnery, Brian Lobel, David Iriarte, Rachel Parry, Howard Hardiman, Nicholas Immaculate, Sue Frumin, Ella Simpson, Thom Shaw, Ryan Ormonde, Roy Kerr, Lucille Power, The Lauderettas and Miss High Leg Kick.
