Sadboi is an autofictional portrait of a sadboi dancer.
"I had a boyfriend. Then I got dumbed. I got dumbed, I bought a thong and I need lots of validation.”
Elias Adam works with Panos Malactos and researches the concept of radical stage vulnerability. Sadboi likes his suffering raw. He is gay, horny, heartbroken and extremely peaceful. He instagrams, therefore he exists. The show attempts an ambiguous and complex narration, which explores sex, love and sadness in the fully technological and sexualised post - modern age.
Sadboi aims to create a immersive experience where intense physicality intersects with the virtual space of internet (social media, memes, dating apps). If lovesongs are dumb, wait till you hear this one. How many fire emojis will this get? The admins of this show are searching for validation.
Sadboi premiered in the Platform of New Choreographers in Limassol, Cyprus in December 2021.
Shows in Greece, Finland, Belgium, Iceland and more will be announced soon.
