Men In The Cities presented a challenging environment in which a single performer played multiple roles.

Interactions between the performer and mannequins enabled relationships to be uncovered physically on stage.

Moving along both axis of the framework, the mannequins could be manipulated into different formations. Through this stark environment the narrator portrays an internal battle inflicted by the pressure of gender roles and patriarchy placed on men in modern society.
