Directed by ‘one of the most important feminist artists working in Britain today’ (The Observer), SHUT DOWN explores the spectrum of modern day masculinity and investigates the pressures, contradictions and confusions of being a man.
Vincent Dance Theatre’s first ever all male production is timely, humorous and highly charged ‘political and poetic dance theatre’ (London Dance), from one of the UK’s most risk-taking and rigorous choreographers. Dance, spoken word, rap and real-life testimony collide to ask: what is it like to live as a man today?
★★★★ “Shut Down isn’t an anti-male rant, but a witty and humane examination of conflicting forces. Vincent identifies, with forensic precision, the different ways in which men react to changing times” The Observer
