Cade & MacAskill are renowned queer live artists based in Glasgow, creating and performing their unique works nationally and internationally in a wide range of contexts.
Their work, together and individually, straddles the worlds of contemporary theatre, live art, queer cabaret, film, children’s performance, site-specific and socially engaged practices. Their show MOOT MOOT, commissioned by Fierce, The Marlborough and The Yard was part of Edinburgh Fringe 2019, Made In Scotland Showcase and British Council Showcase.
They were awarded the inaugural Diane Torr award from Take Me Somewhere and The Work Room, and are being supported by Gessnerallee, Zurich; Mousonturm, Frankfurt; Kampnagel, Hamburg; Tramway, Glasgow and Fierce, Birmingham to develop a new work ‘The Making of Pinocchio’, a semi-autobiographical response to the story of Pinocchio from a queer trans perspective.
Cade & MacAskill regularly perform together in their anti-genre live art concept band ‘Double Pussy Clit F*ck’ which assaults audiences across performance, club and music contexts.
They also both create work as individuals and in various other collaborations.
