MAN UP! HAS DADDY ISSUES
Daddy issues? We all have them. MAN UP! (2015 Edmonton Fringe held-over five-star self-titled smash hit) are back to set the patriarchy ablaze. Dressed in sky-high heels (and not much else), these five men redefine masculinity with their signature brand of genderf*ckery
MAN UP! presents heroes
“You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become a villain” - Batman
If life were a comic book, a superhero would appear at any moment to save the day. However, those we celebrate as heroes often turn out to be villains with good publicists. So what does it mean to be a hero in our reality? MAN UP! brings you an all-new production in their signature dance-theatre style, taking on what it means to be a hero and so much more.
