A PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE ABOUT MASCULINITY

Bosnian-Dutch artist Igor Vrebac (1986) draws inspiration from Instagram after workout selfies, Turkish wrestling and the idea of bromance, in his new physical performance Macho Macho to question the objectified men’s world we are living in today. What’s behind those Calvin Klein six packs? What does a billboard with beer drinking bearded giants on it tell us? When can a man show his vulnerable side?

Macho Macho is a visually attractive duet between two young men trying to represent male beauty. They try to look good, be sexy and stay strong, but the competition that arises, brings them closer to each other and their emotions.

The machos welcome you to their arena where they fight stereotypes about, with and for men. Since language is not a problem in this performance, it is even accessible for your queer chihuahua. Woof!

A jury awarded the performance with the Dioraphte ‘Best of Amsterdam Fringe 2016’ award.
