Them is a theatre piece investigating masculinity in our society and how it affects us. Our female bodies explore masculinity and male stories with the aim to find the humanity that connects us and thereby reaching closer to equality. Is it possible to just be human in a world still dominated by the patriarchy, where the masculine receives more respect than the feminine and gender norms are preventing us from progressing?
We look at masculinity from a feminine angle and feel how it manifests itself, both around and within us. Because masculinity, whether toxic or not, lives within all of us, regardless of gender.
The piece is based on dozens of interviews with men, mostly in the nordic countries, about their experience of masculinity and life in general, as well as intertwining our own stories and experiences of living in a world that is not designed for us. We dive into the subject and we share the good, the bad, the painful, the tragic and the hilarious.
Them is devised and performed by the nordic theatre group Spindrift. It is a theatre piece that because of Covid, and no air traffic to carry the participants between countries, grew wings of its own and became a video piece, and will be presented at the festival as work in process.
The performance will be in English. It will be broadcasted online and on the big screen in Tjarnarbíó.
