Outburst Queer Arts Festival 2016
Avant guardian David Hoyle performed at the very first Outburst in 2007 and has been a regular injection of provocative truth, anarchic wonder and surreal hope for our festival audiences ever since.
We are honoured to invite David back as our ‘keynote’ performer for our 10th anniversary HOME themed programme, to ask “What is Home? What is LGBTQ+ family and to challenge us to find a creative queer home within our own imaginations.
Joining David for a musical interlude to the proceedings is the incomparable Le Gateau Chocolat, who first graced the Outburst stage two years ago and blew everyone away with hisopera-meets-pop culture gorgeousness.
A larger-than-life vocal talent with a booming baritone and big personality, Le Gateau has sung in places as diverse as Glyndebourne Opera and The Paul O’Grady Show.
Like no other Friday night you could possibly have in the city, David Hoyle’s HOME will set you right up for the weekend, with a fire in your belly and a song screaming in your heart.
‘There is nothing quite like him: bold and unique, electrifying and disarmingly humane.’
