It can be only the pure language of a man – simple, rough and a bit careless.  Their lips stay still, but their bodies speak for them.  No useless promises or words, just their memories, their stories and reflection on all the things that have happened and influenced their lives.  Let them speak, ‘cos they’ve got a lot to say…

4 Men in a Boat is one hour duration pure devotion to the seductive power of a movement and story told by men on the stage.  The production brings out a toast to the men’s strength, openness and persistence and a toast to the women for their sensitivity, love and beauty. 

... Fantastic how easy the dancers can perform all those incredible moves.  Only from their breathing you can guess how tired the dancers are after the performance.  Although there are only men on the stage, one should remember, that the author is a woman.  I can only admire how Rūta could guess all the small details of a man’s inner and with her choreography to bring it all up on the stage.  It is definitely a superb woman’s story translated into the man’s language.
