ABOUT

MSM [men seeking men] is a dance theatre piece inspired by transcripts of online conversations between men who seek other men. lemonTree’s Artistic Producer Indrit Kasapi has created a world of electronic beats where music is the omnipotent power, and through choreography, movement, and text, deconstructs online male personas and their personal exchanges with other men. Presented to critical acclaim in June 2013 at Toronto Fringe Festival, the piece had its World Premiere as part of the WorldPride Festivities in Toronto in June 2014. It is currently available for touring.

CRITICAL “..rough, tender, and everything in between” Michael Crabb, TORONTO STAR

“It is a refreshingly honest and revealing take on its subject matter... It’s fascinating.”

Christian Baines THE CHARLEBOIS POST

“The movement is sometimes more telling - and often hotter than the words” Jon Kaplan NOW MAGAZINE


ACCLAIM “...dark, dirty, violent, and sexy....It’s what it would look like if Klimt did a painting of Grindr...”

DAILY XTRA!

“This is not your typical boring lineup of pretty white gay boys and it’s so satisfying to see a representation of a wider swath of the glorious diversity of gay men in our community..” Wayne Leung, MOONEY ON THEATRE
