Sons of Sissy
New Stage (Nová scéna), Národní 4, Praha 1 - Nové Město, 110 00

In an experimental manner, four performers and musicians make use of traditional Alpine live music, various group dances and ritualised practices.
Liberating them from conservativism and conventions, they establish an unseen fusion of artistic reinterpretations and temporary social attributions of meaning.
Defying categorisation and pigeonholing, the Sons of Sissy do everything they can to live up to their name as they conduct themselves as part weird folk-music quartet, part experimentally playful ritual dance combo, using humour to radically disrupt the hackneyed male role models in old traditions.
