OUR CLOSETS OURSHELVES
A physical tale on placing the wardrobe
Having travelled extensively with their wardrobes, Don and Gnu have reached the verge of true knowledge of the wardrobe and it’s various optimal applications placements. They did however, not factor in the Woman.
As a sequel to their highly succesful performance MEN IN SANDALS, OUR CLOSETS OUR SHELVES is a performance which stakes its course from a demanding physical language with a high degree of sensitivity underscoring the subtle while creating a communication of paradoxes.

"Both doors and wardrobes get a good slamming in DON GNU's new, exhilarating and musical performance.."
"...Blows away all preconceived notions of what three men are capable of doing with four wardrobes, a female singing prop and four mandolins in their search after identity"
”An entertaining meeting. An explosive bomb of energetic and boyish muscle-dancing spiced up with Alice Carreri’s enticing, female song and music”
"The surprises keep coming and that combined with Alice Carreri’s most beautiful songs makes OUR CLOSETS OUR SHELVES a full hour of high order entertainment"
