This short but sweet pieces is an intimate look at what it can mean to be a man in this day and age. Using poetic language and movement the trio at the centre of the piece begin to explore their relationship to masculinity, the struggles of trying to fulfil all of the expectations around that, and the impact it can have on their mental health.

The nature of the physical language used coupled with the size of the performers means there were moments when their movements felt restrained to fit in to the space they were using, while the length of the piece gave a sense of a work in progress and I would be interested to see where it can go next.

That said, this is an important conversation to be having, and is handled with care and understanding. It manages to stay feeling personal rather than preachy, and leaves audiences wanting to carry on the discussion themselves.
