"Two gay men are here to perform for your pleasure. They sigh, pout and flirt, caressing both each other and objects from corporations that claim to adore them. Is this simply an intimate session for these boys and their fans, or is there something more being consumed? Exhilarated and bewildered by what they are doing, the boys go through the motions, posing and selling themselves, trying to give you exactly what you want. But who is it all really for? Both the celebration and exploitation of queerness take centre stage in this cheeky exploration of contemporary gay male identity."

 

'GAYBOYS' is a studio performance by Craig Manson with performer and collaborator Conner Milliken. It was developed primarily through clubs and cabaret nights around Glasgow before being awarded Creative Scotland funding to be developed into a full performance in 2019. Initially delayed due to the pandemic, the piece was reimagined for film and broadcast on Tramway TV in 2020. An extract of the show was performed at The Southbank Centre, before finally premiering at Dance International Glasgow in 2021.

The performance has been selected as part of the Made in Scotland Showcase 2022 - a curation of high-quality shows representing Scotland to international promoters at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
