HandsON

Briggsyproduces & Hawk Dance Theatre get HandsON with men and mental health through an honest and intimate outdoor performance experience.

Developed for up to 30 people, this audiovisual dance theatre work invites audiences into an immersive world that explores what it means to be a man in today’s society, and why, in British culture, men are still discouraged from showing raw emotion publicly.

Experienced via wireless headsets set to an original sound score by composer Lee Affen and incorporating discussions with men from a variety of backgrounds, watch as three male performers bear witness to the things that aren’t usually said out loud.

Check out the HandsON website for more information on the piece and its makers.
