Following sellout seasons of The Helendale Nude Footy Calendar and Fraternal, boundary-pushing queer theatre company Kissing Booth return to the Midsumma Festival to present their latest work, in association with Theatre Works. This time they’re turning their thirst for provocation and liberation on the modern Australian man.
Leopard Print Loincloth is a dirty, hilarious, brutally honest jog through the prickly field of contemporary Australian masculinity. Taking inspiration from country music, #ToxicMasculinity, and Nick Riewoldt’s nudes, Leopard Print Loincloth examines the requirements, expectations, and idiosyncrasies that come with manhood.
Leopard Print Loincloth was developed in collaboration with a community of over 60 Melbourne men, and is led by the award-winning creative team of Dominic Weintraub and Jake Stewart.
Inspired by a symphony of diverse testimonies, Leopard Print Loincloth is a fragmented invitation to spend some time with what’s underneath the flannel and the business shirts.
