The Excursions of Mr Broucek to the moon and to the 15th Century
An Opera by Leos Janacek
Act 1 Punk London
set on the streets of London in a scene reminiscent of Derek Jarman's film Jubilee (disillusionment with punk becoming fascistic). He tries to fit in with the drunk homeless artists, but they tease him, the sausages are an inuendo to gay. His low self esteem makes him wield petty power.
Act 2 Andrew Logan and the Alternative Miss World
Broucek drifts to drunken sleep and is transported to London's gay club scene -1990's. Leigh Bowery as an influential, Wonderglitter figure, Andrew Logan's Alternative Miss World inspire the expressionistic costume. Brouceck rejects his inclusion in this society, hiding to 'eat his sausage'. The artists expel him for not 'coming out'.
Act 3 1970s – 1980s London – queer bashing and skinheads
Brouceck wakes and drifts back to sleep finding himself in the anti-gay demonstrations - 1970's, Skinheads led by the Councillor, the anti gay demonstrators discover that Brouceck is gay. Brouceck wakes from his dream but he doesn't resume his life constrained by an heterosexual Lifeworld, he is liberated .
