This double bill by choreographer Andreas Constantinou presents contrasting perspectives on the masculine gender. Anything but subtle and no over-choreographed framing. Using raw aesthetics that are visceral and visually appetizing both works are coarse, crude and in their vulgar state. From the poetic to brutally honest.

The WOMANhouse
Four female performers transform themselves into men and question the social constructs of masculinity from a female point of view. Where does the masculine begin and the feminine end? Together they mock, fight, fuck and frenzy as they embark on a bizarre journey that will amuse, confuse, and maybe even offend some.

ReDoing GENDER
From classical sculptures of male ideals, a gender confused ape, feminized frolics, a box headed individual, to a full blown crying baby with a mans body. ReDoing GENDER is a solo performance filled with intense imagery that displays one mans search for a male gender identity amid the gaze of a patriarchal society.

Reviews

“He stands in a soft light and flexes his muscles, his body is toned, beautiful and well proportioned. He moves beautifully, gracefully and looks like a statue from antiquity. It is great to see a man addressing gender issues in ReDoing GENDER."
