It’s about the neoliberal wobble, the technology of queer fun, and doing family differently. It’sabout the power of homemade mutant hope machines – ways of thinking, feeling and acting that let people without clout build better worlds – right here, right now – one day, one show, one dance at a time.
It’s an hour-long talk with a glamorous assistant and a bit of back-and-forth. It’s full of ideas inspired by Duckie’s work with young LGBTQ+ performers, homeless people and older people, and it’s relevant to anyone wanting to crack on with utopia.
HONESTY BOX TICKETING. Dr Duckie wants you to see HOW TO BUILD A HOPE MACHINE, so there are FREE tickets, or if you are able to, tickets at £5 and £10, depending on your circumstances. All incomes goes to supporting the artists and tech team behind this event
