Beautiful Boys. A stage performance, a solo. One dancer also an actor. Using movement to tell a story. A story about a man loving other men. A reflection on the border between the desire and the need of another person. When did it stop being love and became love carving? This piece is a dance-storytelling-acting piece which is done in 60 minutes. It works with a subtle body. It enjoys, squirms and gives in. We listen to songs that talk about it. It works with performing texts which talk about the desire, love and resignation.
