We are at the early stages of developing a new show, On Wrestling.
We're using olympic wrestling as a choreographic tool. We're digging into models for masculinity. We're playing with the things that might be difficult for men to say to each other and to show to each other.
"We cannot change men, but we can encourage, implore and affirm their will to change. We can respect the truth of their inner being, a truth that they may be inable to speak, that they long to connect, to love, to be loved." - bell hooks
We're open to residency opportunities and commissioning partners. To find out more contact: kate (at) mayk.org.uk
