He says they made my hands into bombs. I’m waiting for him to say ‘you don’t have to do this, it’s ok. You don’t have to do this.’ Instead he says, ‘Jump on the spot. You’re shaking. We can’t let them see that you’re shaking.’’ Stuntman is a new performance for anyone who has ever enjoyed a violent action movie (but felt a bit weird about it).

It is an intensely physical, funny, and tender duet by two men who wrestle with their relationship to violence – both onscreen and off. Fusing the Pow! Biff! and Wallop! of over-the-top stunt fights with personal stories of real encounters with violence from the performers’ lives, Stuntman explores the relationship between violence and masculinity, and the impact this has on our perceptions of men.

The performance on 15 October will be BSL interpreted Iain Hodgetts.
