With a big focus on female-led stories over the last few months, most notably the phenomenal She Bangs The Drums, the Contact Young Company has decided to turn the tables and ask what it means to be a man in the 21st century.
The Contact Young Company are the Contact Theatre‘s renowned, Manchester Theatre Award-winning young ensemble. CYC is made up of young performers, actors, dancers, musicians, stand-up comedians, poets and MCs.
Oh Man is a new performance piece devised by the Contact Young Company alongside performance artist Hetain Patel. Using content taken from interviews with boys and men from different generations, Oh Man is a new piece that seeks to explore the expectations society places on men as we strive for gender equality in our contemporary world.
Hetain Patel’s performance style plays with identity, language and accent, challenging you to think deeper than surface appearances. The Contact Young Company will stitch the male narratives together using everyday movement and striking visuals, to generate a piece that feels both familiar though provocative.
The performance will be held at a secret location. But it’s no secret that tickets will fly out for this one. Don’t miss out.
