Presented by Body Politic
Father Figurine is Body Politic’s first full-length piece. First performed as part of Resolution at The Place in January 2018 and later at MOTUS Festival in June 2018.
With the current climate of mental health discussion, Father Figurine talks about the fragilities and vulnerabilities in men and young boys. This piece combines poignant spoken word poetry with hip hop dance, to explore the fractured relationship between a father and his son and their inability to healthily deal with a traumatic event.
Will they be able to share their emotions with each other? Or will they fall into the statistic of nearly half of men believing they can’t express their feelings?
Q&A Sessions follow after both performances are free for ticket holders.
