What Does He Need is an immersive workshop exploring the needs of a male throughout his life from birth to old age. Through discussion, writing exercises and performances, participants will engage in this ongoing research project exploring gender inequality and masculinity.

What Does He Need is a research project by Brokentalkers, Fiona Whelan and Rialto Youth Project that builds on a long-term project Natural History of Hope.

Theatre company Brokentalkers are currently artists in residence in the Grangegorman area of North Dublin City. The residency is co-funded by Create / CAPP and Grangegorman Development Agency.
