Manpower under microscope

Published: 23 September 2018

A new performance about men and power discusses the rapidly-changing landscape of Brexit Britain.

First performed the day Trump was elected back in 2016, performance artists and theatre makers Two Destination Language look at changing roles for men, the ‘safe spaces’ they build themselves, and how much they love wires.

Tracing the history of Britain's industrial decline since the 1975 vote to remain in the EU, Manpower admits the possibility: men haven't worked for decades.

The show itself revolves around a wooden building, DIY live, built on stage.

It’s at Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh September 26 and 27 then touring extensively until end of November.
