Dominic Jones in Body Talk at The Vault Festival
Dominic Jones plays Carl in Body Talk for Full Disclosure Theatre, which plays at The Vaults Festival at Waterloo.
“Why can’t you just be yourself: an actual person, not a look. Not an image”
Carl is 21, skinny, afraid to come out and hates his body. Cameron is 30, has the classic Instagram body but can’t connect with the real world. Phil is fat and 40, which in gay years feels like life is already over.
Toned, fat or skinny. Bodies can be a big part of a gay man’s world. But for Carl, Cameron and Phil having the ideal one matters a little too much. This touching three-hander tackles this timely issue and asks if our desire to look perfect cuts more than skin-deep.
