Abstract

“Virago-Man Dem,” is an evening-length, dance-theatre work by Cynthia Oliver navigating black masculinities. Troubling the term “Virago”’s reference to characteristically male behaviors and female cultural transgressions, Virago-Man Dem is a nuanced study in masculinities, and their multiplicities within cultures of Caribbeanist and African American communities. Utilizing movement, spoken word and visual design, Virago-Man Dem explores the expressions particular to Caribbean and African American black masculinities as they are performed and expressed by men, staged on male identified bodies, but designed and interpreted by a woman — Oliver.
