- Critical Opinions -

 

 

******  – XQ28

 

“ReDoing GENDER 1.5 is a one man show that challenges gender construction to such an extent that it feels to narrow too be called a one man show.”

– XQ28, Denmark, 2015

 

***** -Ungt Teater Blod

 

“A sharp political spectacle where gender debate takes focus”

-Ungt Teater Blod, Denmark, 2015

 

***** - 5 Stjerner

 

“Sometimes a little too much, crossing the boarders, crossing lines yet utterly wonderful, Redoing GENDER 1.5 is certainly something worth experiencing. It will give rise to discussion and reflection”

- 5 Stjerner, Denmark, 2015

 

**** – Kulturtid

 

“It is incredible how much control An- dreas Constantinou has over his own body. This is art on the highest level. The finest thing about these two performances are that they live in the memory long after the show is done.”

– Kulturtid, Denmark, 2015

 

***** - A Mantastic World

 

"This show is for those who demand a little more then just a spectacle, it's raw, it's deep, it's sharp and its straight to the point. It is both tasteless, offensive and extremely catchy"

- A Mantastic World, Denmark, 2014

 

*** - Teater1 

 

"He stands in a soft light and flexes his muscles, his body is toned, beautiful and well proportioned. He moves beautifully, gracefully and looks like a statue from antiquity. It is great to see a man addressing gender issues in ReDoing GENDER."

- Teater1, Denmark 2014

The committee said about the work:

 

"The performance Redoing Gender marks Andreas Constantinou, as a new exciting name on the physical and visual performance scene in Denmark. In an intimate, naked and fascinating universe queer and masculine identity is tackled with in loving treatment. An entertaining work that both gives the audience something to think about and leaves them wanting to see more."
