Synopsis: 

In a career that spans forty years, Warwick Broadhead has conceived, directed and performed in over sixty original shows presented in a huge variety of venues both in New Zealand and abroad. He has never allowed his work to be recorded.

But now, faced with a director’s provocations, the flamboyant performer is pushed to re-enact the highest and lowest moments of his life using his own cast of alter egos.   From lavish scenes with opulent costuming to the intimate whisperings of a man alone, Warwick bears his soul in phases. He revisits the young man in 1950’s suburbia; the orgy of self-discovery in 60’s San Francisco; the moments of reflection as an artist in the maze of his local sauna.   Rubbings from a Live Man is a testament to one man’s ability to stare his life in the face, by performing it anew.
