We need good boys. Boys who don’t fit the male ideal often think they are doing something wrong and should be more masculine. But aren’t they just what we need, in times of #metoo, homophobia, sexism, racism and violence? Boys Won’t Be Boys is both a stage show and a social movement that unites dancers, singers, rappers, poets and theatre makers. They demonstrate that vulnerability is tough. The jury of the Amsterdam Fringe Festival awarded Boys Won’t Be Boys the Best of Fringe 2018. Sneak peek? Call mobile number +31 6 42 28 04 81 for information and inspiration: from a selflove workshop [two minutes] to a song by Rikkert van Huisstede [1993].

With: a diverse group of boys and men led by Rikkert van huisstede
