More about Toyboys

Toyboys fundamental artistic idea is to visualise the different through the company’s productions. Toyboys wishes to present tangible and abstract moments contributing to a wider understanding of what is "normal".

Toyboys aims for a floating understanding of identity and accept for several parallel existing gender categories not limiting, but expanding our understanding of identity and "the other".

Toyboys finds the different interesting. The company seeks to present identity not built around narrow frames and prejudiced roles.

"We find it a self-evident truth that all humans are born equal and with equal rights to life, choice of gender identity, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
