Presented by Rachael Clerke
In a deserted TV studio somewhere on the cusp of a new era, a middle-aged architect hosts the last ever episode of his long-running chat show. Just out of shot, the world as we know it ends.
Béton Brute is a satirical drag eulogy for a world past its use-by-date. With original live ‘music’ from anti-virtuoso punk band the Great White Males, it’s an homage to failed utopias, alpha-masculinity and the bands we never formed as teenagers.
