M.I.S. All Night Long
DON GNU are back in their threadbare socks and downtrodden sandals in their hunt for contemporary man’s identity
“M.I.S. – All Night Long” takes measure of modern man. What’s up? And how is he really doing – underneath those woolen socks and comfy sandals? Here you meet the dazed and confused; the grown dude who was raised in the 1970’s as a bouncing ball between role models from Dirty Harry to Sesame Street.
In a hard-boiled mix of jackass stunts, slapstick comedy and raw physicality three men get off the fence; Out of their comfort zone to come to grips with their inner beast, the Latino lover, the pushover, the best buddy – and all the others – in a quiet battle for a man’s right to be himself.
The performers take the stage on a backdrop of wacky film projections and live club music that comment and frame the characters’ physical endeavors – all night long!
”An on-stage adventure of Chaplinesque dimensions”
"The funniest dance performance, I have ever seen!”
”…who knew wollen socks could be SO sexy?”
The Skinny Magazine
”With their humor and unpretentious style, they have once again created a wonderful performance with broad appeal”
MEN IN SANDALS - THE TRILOGY
“M.I.S. - All Night Long” is the final part of DON GNU's MEN IN SANDALS trilogy.
DON (Jannik Elkær) and GNU (Kristoffer Louis Andrup Pedersen) first put on their work clothes and wooly socks with "MEN IN SANDALS" (2010), followed by “OUR CLOSETS OUR SHELVES” (2012), which was nominated for the Danish Reumert Prize and received the audience prize that same year.
"M.I.S. – All Night Long” completes the trilogy – in the same socks and sandals that started the journey.
