How might Black men+ undo patriarchy? Perhaps by falling apart.
A Little Tenderness is a trilogy – Solo, Duet, and Trio – that will premiere in three separate evening-length performance explorations of touch and intimacy among Black men+. Using physical and sonic vocabularies of grief, I/we will play at the intersections of race, gender, (dis)ability, and value.
Note: My friend bear hebert introduced me to men+ in their Undoing Patriarchy class. Men+ is meant to be inclusive of transmen, assigned-male non-binary folks, cis-men, and anyone else benefitting from internalized patriarchal conditioning.
