Man Lessons: The Live Show
Performed by Adam Rohe / Film by Ben Sarten
Over the past five years, a feature length documentary has been in production following Adam Rohe’s transition. Now – you are invited behind-the-scenes. A live exposé adventure into an already intimate and earnest film.
A visually stunning and emotional intersection of documentary and live performance, Man Lessons: The Live Show features comedy, storytelling, live music, and never-before-seen footage.
Adam Rohe is a prominent transgender actor, director and clown. Man Lessons is a bold, beautiful film by close friend and filmmaker Ben Sarten, who has followed Adam through doctor’s appointments, surgeries, psychosis, and the day-to-day.
Over the years, hours of footage have been collated and not all of it will make the cut… But it makes excellent theatre.
A live multimedia experience that celebrates finding empowerment in the making of one’s self.
