Men

A crossover theatre performance inspired by true stories of men. What is life like for men nowadays? Isn’t it too much sometimes, too demanding? When the animal within awakens, the call of the pack must be heard. Six men set out on a journey into the wilderness to find answers to the most intimate questions. It is out there that they come to terms with their problems and, most of all, with themselves. Stagnation, suppressed aggression, homosexuality, faith or an absent father: there is always something to get over. Let’s stop judgding men with all the prejudices dictated by our society.
