Sons of Sissy
A male quartet of performers from Vienna
A quartet of performers bodaciously combines yoddling, folk dance and music of the Upper Austria Alps with contemporary perfromance and unique sense of humour. Simon Mayer, a choreographer, dancer and musician, inteprets the traditional male rituals in completely new manner. Having been exposed to the folk art of the Upper Austria since his childhood, he didn’t abandon his fascination with it even after he moved to Vienna. In his performance the nudity can at times be a costume, the rivalry clashes with the brotherhood and the archaic cobines with the modern in order to show what manliness means today.
