Father Figurine at The Hat Factory
20th September 2019
Body Politic presents
A depressed stoic father. An independent anxious son. Can they heal their relationship after a traumatic family ordeal?
Originally performed as part of Resolution at The Place in January 2018, this September Father Figurine celebrates the company’s first National Tour. The piece - which combines poignant spoken word poetry with hip hop dance to explore a fracture relationship between father and son - is a “powerful and moving” expression of male ego and mental health.
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?
