Be a man. Don’t be a man. Real men are feminists. Show feelings. Pull yourself together. Be cool. Pussy! What masculinity suits me, what images of masculinity are inside you? Where do these images come from? And what does patriarchy have to do with it?

To live music, the Bernese Kollektiv F clears out old habits and burned-in images of masculinities in their latest dance piece. A critical, funny, feminist, accessible and sensual dance evening for young people and adults.


Kollektiv F’s latest dance production tackles images of masculinity that are prevalent in advertising, sports, social media, music, film, etc. These instantly recognizable images are accepted as the valid versions of what masculinity is: strong, aggressive, ambitious, successful, dominant.

“Don’t Be a Man!” challenges these images and argues for masculinities in which men cooperate more than compete, dance more than fight, cry more and laugh more, express feelings and listen to each other, really listen. It shows how the toxic system of patriarchy is deeply damaging to women, to relationships, but just as much to men. The male performers reflect on what the patriarchy has taught them and what they want to dispose of in the hazardous waste.
