In the organizer's words:

For whom are cowboys still sexy? At night we have become REAL men. Or heroes? We'll cry under the beer table and one thing's for sure: the fries in the swimming pool are fatter than my bottom. Someone had to win the mating dance. And lose the antler fight. Sure, the two of us can be a band.

Die Nacht in der wir Männer wurden is an entertaining evening of physical theater with a night-life vibe, drag and original live music that explores positive forms of modern masculinity. From a non-binary and trans-male perspective, the (i)dentityteam questions what masculinity actually is and how we want to be male. The artists use a wide range of artistic elements such as movement, choreography, music, stand-up comedy, acting and, of course, drag! You can expect a humorous, artistic and raw deep dive into the open-air pool of identity formation, puberty, coming-outs and transition. There are songs about feelings and male roles in relationships; there are cowboys, swimwear and courtship dances; and above all, there is one important question: is this male now?
