Rhum and Clay
Tue 13 Mar 2018
Award-winning physical theatre company Rhum and Clay present an exciting collaboration with darkly comic transgender theatre writer and director Kit Redstone, after a critically acclaimed and award winning run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.
What does it mean to be a man or a woman?
Is gender innate or is it nurtured?
Kit is in an amusing and unique position, having transitioned from female to male in his early thirties, he has experienced adult life on both sides of the gender fence, giving him the opportunity to notice what differences there are in how he is treated by society – what he gains and what he loses by becoming a man. He is also able to choose exactly what kind of man he wants to be without the usual influences of a gendered upbringing. With this refreshingly honest and irreverent physical theatre comedy by critically acclaimed company Rhum and Clay and darkly comic theatre writer and director Kit Redstone, TESTOSTERONE explores the sometimes toxic world of men and looks at the benefits and restraints Kit has observed whilst becoming a man.
What kind of ‘man’ are you?
‘Multi-layered and gripping physical theatre piece is much more than what Redstone wickedly satirises as another story about brave little trans soldiers which reminds us that transitioning is beginning not an ending.’
