Craig Manson: GAYBOYS
Preview performance ahead of Edinburgh Fringe 2022
Two gay men are here to perform for your pleasure. They sigh, pout and flirt, caressing both each other and objects from corporations that claim to adore them. Is this simply an intimate session for these boys and their fans, or is there something more being consumed? Exhilarated and bewildered by what they are doing, the boys go through the motions, posing and selling themselves, trying to give you exactly what you want. But who is it all really for?
Both the celebration and exploitation of queerness take centre stage in this cheeky exploration of contemporary gay male identity.
Presented in association with Tramway, part of Made In Scotland Showcase Edinburgh Fringe 2022.
