An intensely physical, funny, and tender duet by two men wrestling with their relationship to violence – both onscreen and off. Fusing the Pow! Biff! and Wallop! of over-the-top stunt fights with personal stories of real encounters with violence from the performers’ lives, Stuntman explores the relationship between violence and masculinity and the impact this has on our perceptions of men. A show for anyone who has ever enjoyed a violent action movie (but felt a bit weird about it).
Notes: contains violence, strong language and reference to suicide
Neil Webb, Director Theatre and Dance, British Council and one of Made in Scotland 2023 panellists, talks about the reasons why Stuntman was selected to be a part of the MiS showcase.
