E - man - A

The most despicable things that I have ever experienced all trace back to the patriarchy. As a man, what am I going to do about it? Can I emanate something other than what I have been taught and have practiced ever since?


Through the use of live vocal looping, video projection and autobiographical narrative, this solo theatre performance explores what place do the body, language, and improvised song have in the ritual of understanding and challenging patriarchal masculinity from within.

On-stage premiere: Nov 10th 2022, The Cockpit, Voila! Europe Theatre Festival.

Online premiere: Feb 7th 2023, hosted by Sound and Music. 

Here is an article I write about the show, its script and themes for We Are The City.
