Man Made was a two and a half day residency in a Scottish prison, ending in a performance. Soroka asked the question, "what makes a man?" and the participants responded by teaching Soroka how to act, look, move, think and feel like a man.
The end result: Soroka performed alongside the men, crossing the (perceived and real) borders between man/woman and prisoner/civillian. What was found was much more complexity and connection than Soroka had imagined.
