Author(s): Dickie Beau

Dickie Beau—Ariel in this summer’s The Tempest—shape-shifts across a haunted landscape of performance that stretches back for thousands of years, tracing its roots and branches across unexpected realms. A live lip-synching archive, Dickie summons spirits of ritual and transformation, from Greek tragedians to pantomime dames, from Beckett to the bodhisattvas.

In ¡Showmanism!, he goes on a journey embracing the politics and puzzles of performing personhood in and out of the spotlight in a love letter to the origins and orientations of performance.
