The Blokes Project

30 01 2018

The BLOKES Project includes a new dance work (performed on a shipping container, researched with family & community elders in their truck yards, sheds & vehicles) investigating the embodied myths, truths and stereotypes of how to be Australian. Beyond the Beer and the Bullshit.

Dancing to ‘break the cycle’ of damage to self and others without shame or disassociation of our own heritage.

In an age of toxic masculinity, how can we turn the critical lens on ourselves to build a new narrative of how to be a BLOKE?
