Theseus Beefcake

  • York Theatre Royal (map)

A hero and minotaur are locked in the ultimate death match. Theseus Beefcake journeys into the dark labyrinth of masculinity, colliding mixed martial arts, death metal, American frat culture, rodeos, pornography and Greek mythology along the way. Joseph Mercier and Jordan Lennie push against their personal thresholds of pain and pleasure in this unforgettable duet exploring masculine excess, fantasy, friendship and competition.

PanicLab produces performance in the fields of contemporary theatre and dance. PanicLab is passionate about performance that is raw, honest, extraordinary and humble. The work the company makes is political, personal, serious yet with a good dose of humour. It is accessible to a wide audience and unpretentious.
