Capital Chorus will perform at the Wellcome Collection's event called "The Delicate Art and Complex Science of Masculinity".  This event, running from 7pm to 11pm, is free but you need to book when booking opens in April. The location details will announced in March.

A bit more about the event:

What does it mean to be manly? Can we pin masculinity down, dissect it, understand it? Can we even live with it?

Join our brave team of artists, historians, scientists and performers as they explode our assumptions about what masculinity is, was, and can be.

  • Dress up and dance with expert drag kings, let your competitive side rip in testosterone-fuelled games, or relax with a performance by one of London's finest male choruses
  • Delve into the dark side with vital conversations about violence, men and mental health, or meet the people helping the next generation find their own versions of manhood
  • Choose your path through the maze of manliness, and celebrate those who resist, rewrite and reimagine masculinity.
