Simon Mayer is a country boy who was born in a small village in Austria. He is one of the four performers in Sons of Sissy: a performance featuring rural rituals, dancing and live performances of Alpine music. Folklore with a twist. Freed from all conservatism and averse to any form of pigeonholing, these gentlemen, part queer band of folk musicians and part ‘experimental ritual dance combo’, are unflinchingly going in search of hitherto unseen interpretations. With laughter as their weapon they offer a complete overhaul of the clichés of traditional male role models. Sons of Sissy is a European festival hit that offers an unexpected introduction to Alpine folklore.
