NEXT PERFORMANCES OF THEM AT VALTIMONTEATTERI, HELSINKI

THEM is a documentary-based theatre performance about Nordic male identites, interpreted by women. The performance is based on interviews gathered from men living mainly in the Western world. Four actresses dive into the world of men, exploring images of masculinity and their impact on the life of men in Nordic societies. The approach is empathetic in attempting to understand the male condition and the possible oppression men can receive from the society's end. Them consists of monologues performed in English, Finnish, Swedish and Icelandic, depending on the country of each performance.
