The WOMANhouse sees four powerfully athletic female performers transform themselves into men. Acting like typical blokes with beards and all they stir up fights and frenzy. Questioning masculinity in female bodies, they tear up stereotypical ideas about what it is to be a man – and about what female bodies might do. Tender, aggressive, sexy, blurry, this show crosses all the lines.
