Gentlemen is inspired by a story from the quote from the book Nay Nai “When women were not welcomed in the royal court, who replaced Nang Nai (ladies-in-waiting)?”
Through classical and contemporary dance styled in the high-energy format, Gentlemen sets out to investigate male-female roles nowadays and the training process of how men and women today aiming to reach the apex of power and influence. While everyone wants to be the best, they forget about “gentleness, rules, manners and moral”.
