The Masculinity Project

a devised new work

This devised ensemble piece will explore the nuanced social, cultural, and political roles of masculinity, and its complex relationships to the personal narratives of people with differing gender and sexual identities. This dynamic project will explore the perspectives of those whose gender intersects with the expectations, joys, and challenges of masculinity, whether in part or whole, by choice or by force. The piece seeks to speak what is too often unspoken around masculine identities and hopes to illicit new and healing conversation as a result.

Get Involved

Want to get involved? We are seeking collaborators whose gendered experience intersects with masculinity, including but not limited to cisgender men, trans men, trans masculine individuals, trans women, trans feminine individuals, and nonbinary individuals. The project will be devised through a collaborative process in Winter 2020.
