Big Gay Disco Bike

Fatt Projects

Dance, Family, Music/Sound, Walkabout

Two Drag Queens lead a group of adults and children at the front of Big Gay Disco Bike. One Drag Queen rides on a gold tricycle with tassels and a gold disco ball hanging at the front wearing a black and silver chevron sequin jumpsuit and a blonde mop wig. The second Drag Queen wears a short red wig with curls, a leopard print jumpsuit and walks behind the bike holding a bubble-blower. A group of adults and children follow in a conga line behind with a group in the middle wearing lots of yellow and black.

Expect glitter, confetti, power ballads, and a big dose of camp as we get communities up on their feet and dancing together.

Using a distinctive mix of drag, cabaret, live music, interactive game shows, and disco Performed by some of the UK’s leading cabaret artists, Fatt Projects are transforming public spaces into dancefloors and explosions of queer joy.

Expect glitter, confetti, power ballads, and a big dose of camp as we get communities up on their feet and dancing together.

DISCO NATION is a body of outdoor and public space queer performance work from Fatt Projects, with the aim of transforming the nation through the power of queer joy, drag, & disco.

There are three offers under the DISCO NATION umbrella, each specifically designed to cater to different locations, audiences, budgets and scales of presentation:

BIG GAY DISCO BIKE – a small scale mobile disco performed on a bike.

DISCO TEA PARTY – an interactive cabaret gameshow, with audiences sat at tables and competing in disco themed games, sharing tea and cake, and ending in social disco dancing.

THE DISCO NATION – a large scale public space silent disco for up to 200 people at any time.

Suitable for all ages, get your dancing shoes on and step into the disco nation on your own doorstep – because anywhere can be a dancefloor, babes!

About Fatt Projects

Fatt Projects is a midlands based queer performance company dedicated to creating socially engaged projects, which use performance in diverse contexts to think about queerness, community, fatness, care, & making change. 

We create ‘full-fat’ projects with a distinctly queer aesthetic, which are just as likely to take place in public spaces and contexts where queer identities and politics are underrepresented as it is in a conventional theatre space. 

We are interested in asking questions, art that celebrates, and making spaces that empower people.
