production information

When award-winning performer and lip synch maestro Dickie Beau realised he might never play the Dane, he decided instead to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theatre's most famous role, to "re-member" the ghosts of Hamlet from the past. Haunting the set of Robert Icke's Hamlet, this solo satellite show is the story of Dickie's failed quest to become the Über-Hamlet ... and why he got distracted on the way.

Part documentary theatre, part twenty first century séance, Re-Member Me is a personal adventure in cultural archaeology and a very contemporary ghost story. It is an ode to the impermanence of personhood, procrastination, and the presence of absence on the haunted stage. 

Re-Member Me was developed with the support of the National Theatre’s New Work Department.

London-based actor, physical performer and intrepid drag fabulist, Dickie Beau, is a postmodern cultural pickpocket, maverick theatre-maker and twisted video star; looting a range of performance traditions, from "low culture" to "high art", in the creation of distinctive performance experiences.

Within his approach, Dickie draws on many other performance traditions, including clowning, theatre, vaudeville, dance and mime, without being exclusive to one school's rules. He merges the sensibility of contemporary culture with queer twists and informed echoes of the past.

Increasingly combining his own original video and sound work with live performance, he crosses over, stands at the edges, and lies in between conventions. He has taken his work to a wide range of audiences in truly diverse settings: nightclubs, art galleries, cabaret bars, cinemas, museums, theatres, fashion shows, festivals, online, in stores and on the street.

Dickie Beau breathes electrifying new life into an age-old art form. He is a star of the future
