BRIAN DAWN CHALKLEY
Extract from SOUNDPIECE
'Ted's Bar' is an everyday story of transvestites, bisexuality and accountants.
Using the taxi as a confessional, Brian Dawn Chalkley retells a conversation
in a bar. Confusingly, all the characters speak with the same voice and,
just as one person melds into another, so the conversation moves effortlessly
from idle chit-chat to explicit sexual detail. This sound piece raises
many questions about identity, reality, truth and fantasy but here are
some facts: Brian Dawn Chalkley IS a transvestite living in London, and
Ted's Bar does exist- ask a cabbie to take you there. Cab Gallery is also
showing Brian Dawn Chalkley's new book "Dawn in Wonderland"
published by platform.
