Everything. Everything we think. Everything we do, we do it with one sole purpose in mind: Mating. Getting laid. SEX. Socially correct it might be not, but procreation is our ultimate goal. Says who? We do. And more specifically: our bodies. Our Body Language subconsciously reveals everybody’s very naughty mind.
Over the last 25 years Gaëtan has become obsessed with understanding our body language. The signification of our gestures. Our posturing. Our signs and signals. From our little pinkie we raise when drinking champagne to the breath we hold when passing a stunning creature … Every slightest move has a very specific raison d’être.
Embark with Schmid on the discovery of the hidden secrets of our body Language. A witty and funny full of revelatory “Wow, what the …!” journey spanning from the massive explosion of the Big Bang to the microscopic neurons flashing in our brains. “It is an off-the- rails TedTalk!”, says director and wife Lara Bye, who kept performer and husband Gaëtan Schmid on the rails as long as possible.

What the press had to say
NOT AS KAK AS THE TITLE
"During the hour-long show, Schmid combines comedy and biology to present a doubly captivating and hilarious talk which analyses evolution, body language and the human need for procreation. He uses slideshows, mime, and monologue that results in a clever TEDtalkcumcomedy showhybrid. "
Heather Cameron Cue 2015
"A fascinating and hilarious one-man comedy about the mating rituals of the modern man. The fast paced performance from Gaetan Schmid, who with his zany wit, shares the differences between the sexes in this sometimes risque but never boring show. Very entertaining!"
Wendy King Cue 2015
“Gaëtan Schmid is back; and thank goodness for that. With his hilariously funny ‘lecture’ on the mating rituals of man we all wish we had him for a biology teacher. Excellent use of various forms of multimedia keeps the audience rolling in the aisles.”

VERSUS SOCIAL MEDIA
In our brand new world of hyper-active connectivity we’ve become addicted to instant communication, to instant gratification. Quick and easy fixes but resulting in an obvious deterioration: plenty of pseudo connections, superficial relationships and hysterical miscommunications.
On the other hand, face to face contact is good old school communication. More slow food than fast food but refined over millions of years and with its original and most important ingredient: Body Language.
Unfortunately, today lots of us have lost the ability to read our body language properly and thus genuinely communicate with each other. But it’s not too late!
