About This Show

Brecht’s prophetic 1926 classic Man is Man follows the transformation of Galy Gay from a naive and ignorant porter in Colonial British India into a vicious fighting machine, at the hands of a company of soldiers who need a fourth man. When Galy Gay is forced to give up his identity for that of the lost soldier, his story turns grim with unstoppable and frightening consequences.

Offering an unusual view on the dilemmas and cruelties of war, Binnerts’ production of Man is Man is played as “real-time theater,” with the actors always present on stage as themselves, in effect being themselves in the play’s roles and scenes, which they re-create. The story unfolds in an unusual theatrical form, as the actors manipulate and film small objects and miniature set pieces, with the images then projected onto screens.
