“I have had a whirlwind period from diagnosis to amputation in only 6 months and found himself as a man with a mission.”
Richard Stamp’s Dick is a shocking and poignant retelling of a profound experience mixed with the comedy and bizarre reality of life.
Lead artist and clown Richard Stamp collaborates with highly experienced creatives and practitioners to present his honest experience with penile cancer. Dick describes his whirlwind journey from diagnosis to partial penectomy (removal of the penis), which left him a clown with a mission: to promote understanding of the disease and its effects, to both doctors and civilians. An important piece that explores ideas about taboo, manhood, and potency which can obstruct early diagnosis and mental vulnerability.
