4 men. 4 ropes to the sky. A legendary piece – not just – about the “men’s world”.
Beyond being a beautiful work about the masculine body (why is it almost never shown the way female body is?) and the use of space and falls as tools of a choreographic expression, the piece is an immersion in the unconsciousness of boys and men. The Hidden Men holds a special mirror in front of us, in which we can see the „Macho”, the „Narcissus” and also „Hercules”, and we can closely examine the archetypes of man. Frenák offers us a radical vision; he probes male sexuality through its different aspects: its origins, as well as its unconscious sources. Its sensuality is without compromise, its rudeness is poetic. The symbols used prompt us to make associations, as the scenery and the source of the movement language is a rope-system on stage and its inspiring verticality.
