Scottee is an artist from London, his work is often about outsiderness; race, sexuality, class, age and gender. He creates spaces where the perceived underdog is celebrated, at the forefront and no longer ignorable.
His work has been performed for audiences across the globe; Australia, Asia, Europe and America. In London his projects have been presented at some of the worlds leading spaces; Barbican, Royal Opera House, Tate Britain, Roundhouse, ICA and Southbank Centre but he prefers to make work in dodgy gay bars, public toilets, bedrooms, disused tanning shops and forgotten community centres.
In 2010 Scottee won the title of Time Out Performer of the Year, his debut solo tour The Worst of Scottee won Total Theatre Award for Innovation in 2013 and in 2015 Scottee was included on Independent’s Rainbow List as one of Britain’s most influential LGBTQI+ people. He is currently an associate artist at the Roundhouse and with performance company Duckie.
Scottee is a co-host on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends; in 2015 his debut radio documentary My Big Fat Documentary was made BBC Radio 4’s Documentary of the Week. He also writes a weekly column for Vice’s i-D channel.
Scottee is not easily definable; artist, activist, broadcaster, writer and attention seeker.
His work is live, brash, clumsy and will often leave you covered in confetti.
