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.
You can read more about the making of Man Lessons the film on The Spinoff here.
Man Lessons: The Live Show was funded by Nōku te Ao Like Minds with support from the Mental Health Foundation, and Wellington City Council’s Arts & Culture Fund.
