With a large dose of physical comedy, flexible bodies and hairy creations, M.P.A.C. creates a clown show for the 21st century about head hair and body hair - shaved, overgrown, dyed and lost. By putting standards of hair under the microscope and sharing personal experiences, a comic story is revealed on the boundary between theater, circus and performance art.
“It is feminist because we are feminists and we have the opportunity to create this show in our own universe without having to deal with patriarchal structures or the male gaze. We refuse to be assistants or ‘fancy props’, unlike the norms of traditional circus where women are expected to participate amongst muscular men as a beautiful display.” “Our starting point is similar to punk music, as it means to do things in our own way, to create art that might not confirm to the commercially sought and to strive for authenticity before perfection. Through the clown, we reach our ambitions. To us, the clown is by nature anarchic and functions like a kind of society's conscience. The clown exists in the contact with the audience. Humor is a driving force. At the core is play.”
