MEN IN SANDALS
DON GNU are out on the hunt to find their masculine selves in a modern world
They start out exactly from where they stand - with their feet planted in sandals and their stubborn insistence on keeping their woolly socks on.
MEN IN SANDALS is a performance whereby physical discourse puts a spotlight on masculinity, authority and identity.
Neither Don or Gnu seem capable initially of finding way, but they embark on a desperate search to cut to the chase and make sense of their sandals, socks and wardrobes.
MEN IN SANDALS is a comical, physical and challenging performance. The main pillars of expression being sharp and clear communication with a clear invitation to a broad audience.
