On Saturday, May 2nd, at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, I will be performing as part of ManQuestion.org’s 2015 New Masculinities Festival. Tickets are $10 per performance slot, each of which lasts about an hour, and $20 for the day. You can buy tickets here. There’s also a Facebook page. If you’re in the area, it would be lovely to see you there.
The festival’s organizers, who have partnered with some interesting organizations—MaleSurvivor, re:gender, and Applied Theatre Collective—describe the day this way:
Re-Performing Manhood: We examine the impact of expectations of masculinity on people’s lives and work to imagine new possibilities for gender expression…. [I]n the festival, we take advantage of the power of produced theatre, dance, and performance art to challenge our thinking and transport us to new worlds and perspectives.
Here’s the festival poster, which contains the schedule. I’m going on during the 5:30 slot:
