A delicious new interactive banquet, Cake Daddy will plunge you belly deep inside the experience of fat/ness, exploring the fabulosity and fortitude required to step into the world as a fat person today. Fat is a verb. Come and gorge on Daddy’s slice o’ vinyl disco heaven!
Cake Daddy is about being fat in a fat-phobic world. It’s about being proud of being fat: not apologising for taking up space, not trying to diet, not trying to change one’s body size. The banquet introduces the GIRTHY and formidable, Cake Daddy: Yes, you may bow in his glittery presence.
Irish collaborators Ross Anderson-Doherty and Marty Byrne (To Build a Bear, Qabarett) team up with Australian wreckedAllprods duo Alyson Campbell and Lachlan Philpott (Bison, The Trouble with Harry, Colder, GL RY) to shake, slap and bake this wonderful, chequered Battenberg of a show at Theatre Works. The cherry on top of this international cake mix is the sublime artwork and costumes of Uruguayan artist Leho de Sosa.
The work has been in development in Australia and Ireland with the support of The British Council, The Arts Council of Northern Ireland, The Australia Council and Outburst Queer Arts Festival.
