The British Council is proud to support British artist and drag fabulist Dickie Beau. 

Dickie Beau performed his one-man show Re-Member Me, a piece which puts a modern twist on Shakespeare's Hamlet, at the Public Theater's 2018 Under the Radar Festival. See below for a description of the performance from Under the Radar.

When award-winning lip sync maestro and intrepid drag fabulist Dickie Beau realized that he might never play Shakespeare’s tragic prince, he decided to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theater's most famous role to “re-member” the ghosts of Hamlet from the past.

Humorous and haunting, Re-Member Me is part documentary theatre, part 21st-century séance adventure through cultural landscapes and a contemporary ghost story. In an ode to the impermanence of personhood and posterity, Beau chronicles the remarkable story behind the greatest Hamlet almost never seen.
