In a society where the Black male body is both vilified and sexualized, Black Boys uncovers the complex dynamics of the queer Black male experience. Text, movement, and design portray the rhythm and vulnerability of three very different Black men who seek a deeper understanding of themselves, each other, and of how they encounter the world. As they explore their unique identities, their performances rigorously interrogate and playfully subvert the ways in which gender, sexuality, and race are read and performed.
"This is an exceptional, powerful, and quite delightful piece of work." —S. Bear Bergman, Mooney on Theatre
