Are you man enough to be gay?

Stephan Herwig’s latest dance production is inspired by the perspective of gay artists in the History of Art and Aesthetics.
Five male dancers on stage: That basic constellation in itself creates a vibrant energy all of its own.
The dancers are revealing themselves, they are getting to the bottom of both their masculine and feminine sides;
at times reluctantly and suggestively; at other times in an aggressive and extroverted manner.
Stereotypes are being shifted and dispelled; different images of the male body are being evoked and called into question.
The strong individual personalities of the dancers create a fascinating and energizing friction.
While not, however, tying anything down, but leaving as much of interpretation up in the air as possible –
the borders are blurred. Ultimately, it is all about “being oneself and to allow this with all its consequences.”
