Man Up!

Written and Directed by Jeremy Ives

Man Up! was performed at the Midsumma Festival 22-25 January 2020 at Meat Market - Stables, 5 Blackwood Street, North Melbourne. 

Man Up! explores current societal views and norms around the way men behave and questions where men and masculinity are headed. Based on countless interviews with real people, the script is woven to reflect the way people have perceived men in their life and what the future holds for our young boys as they become men. A fascinating insight into what people are currently thinking and feeling. A touching performance exploring social issues of domestic violence, aggression, homophobia and dominance; balanced by the nurturing, vulnerability and sensitivity we don’t always see.
