The stronger sex
It is not only women who should be given tips and tricks in glossy magazines. Men too have a right to answers to their questions about how to be a man, lover, father, friend or human being.
Why are there international women’s days and none for men? Why is being a woman made into such a problem, even though it can’t be easy to live life as a man either? Why are women always celebrated in art while men are given very little praise? Based on her great love for the stronger sex, Laura van Dolron, as a woman, takes on the challenge of remedying this situation. She pays tribute to men, but to a different man every evening. Consequently, each night brings a different performance and may well turn out to be a rough battle of the sexes, a dreamy duet or a romantic comedy.
• The Dutch stand-up philosopher Laura van Dolron writes, directs and performs in her own performances, in which sophisticated humour goes hand in hand with deeper, important questions about the world we live in.
