Recommended Age Guideline 8+

What does it mean to be a man today? Robbie (44) and Alfie (10) meet on an extraordinary building site. Together they dance and play trying to make sense of this question.

Directed by Eoin McKenzie in collaboration with performers Robbie Synge and Alfie, this is a funny and tender new dance performance for audiences aged 8+ that considers familiar and unexpected ideas about masculinity and friendship.

Notes: Loud noises, themes of masculinity, touch, and physical aggression.
