Award-winning theatre-makers Emma Mary Hall and Prue Clark explore the state of modern man and romantic ambition in a world where women can have it all.
Across 15 chapters, Ode to Man is dark and funny storytelling. Accompanied by original animation and projection by Lindsay Cox and digital sound composition by Chris Wenn (Primitive Calculators), both notable men.
Inspired by Spalding Gray and Bettina Arndt.
The second show from the makers of critically-acclaimed sellout success We May Have to Choose, which won Best Director at 2017 Auckland Fringe, Best Theatre (Weekly) at 2015 Adelaide Fringe and three awards at 2015 Melbourne Fringe, including the Melbourne Festival Discovery Award.
Ode to Man premiered in a sellout season at 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and returns to Melbourne Fringe for one week only.
Good luck, boys.
