RUNNING between February 1-6 at Gasworks Arts Park in Melbourne, acclaimed queer artist Gavin Roach returns to Midsumma with the second instalment of his Anxiety Trilogy — The Measure of a Man.
Following on from his successful I Can’t Say The F Word, The Measure of a Man is told in Gavin’s trademark humorous, raw, and deeply candid style.
[showads ad=MREC] Plunging deep into the heart of one man’s sexual anxieties, it dares to ask the question: “If you’re a gay man that can’t have sex, what worth do you have?”
“Stories like The Measure of a Man are sometimes rarely spoken about,” Roach said.
“They’re often shrouded in embarrassment or shame. There have been many times when I’ve spoken with others about the show and the themes and they suddenly become wide-eyed and say, ‘I thought I was the only one.’
“I don’t think my story has any more gravity than anyone else’s, but if it gets people talking then I don’t see that as a bad thing.”
His previous productions include Confessions of a Grindr Addict, Any Womb Will Do, and I Can’t Say The F Word, all of which he wrote and performed in, and which have celebrated sell out seasons and national and international tours.
The Measure of a Man is presented as a part of the 2016 Midsumma Festival and promises to be another powerful, engaging, and highly entertaining work by one of Melbourne’s most lauded queer artists.
