Timon (2019)

Timon is a performative essay on patriarchy and its effects on male emotions. It is based on Shakespeare’s drama Timon of Athens, in which the protagonist, deeply disappointed and speechless, shuts himself away from the world after his carefully nursed network of all-male political and business friendships has failed. The performance asks how our perception of masculinity is intertwined with violence and hate – which, in Timon’s case, eventually lead to self-destruction.
