PERFORMANCE: a male ant has straight antennae

A Male Ant Has Straight Antennae is an ensemble dance piece that explores notions of masculinity through stereotypes, games, touch and relationships. Playing out the polarities of masculinity in a stage that resembles an arena, this piece challenges singular perspectives on the male body and its moorings. 

Having begun by observing men on the streets, the piece now finds itself addressing the ideas of masculinity as they reside in the real moments of contact between people. The choreographer sees an urgent need to view masculinity through multiple lenses, especially in the specific context of the Indian subcontinent, where various kinds of gendered violence are increasingly being reported.
