Theseus Beefcake by PanicLab (UK) – 30 min

A bastardised and humorous homage of the Athenian tale of Theseus and the Minotaur played out by a changing series of characters, each pair delving into the labyrinth of masculinity. From American frat students to wrestlers in lycra, questions arise about excess, fantasy and friendship oft-with a homo-erotic bond leading to a final showdown between the prince of Athens and the man eating legend, with boxing gloves. A story about friendship that crosses cultural borders. Created with Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill and performed by Joseph Mercier and Jordan Lennie.

This piece is a shortened version of the full production (full length 65 minutes)
