Masc 4 Marginalisation (2018)

Masc 4 Marginalisation tackles prejudices and manufactured marginalisations within modern gay culture.

This work is inspired by modern issues that are perhaps leading the community’s ever-progressive flow to a temporary standstill. Addressing masculinity, femininity, and fluidity, we explore current categories set out to label and pigeonhole those within LGBTQ+ communities. We delve into what could be when social ‘boxes’ are deconstructed, boundaries are blurred, and the space between individuals are rid of prejudice or preference.

Choreography - Brian Gillespie

Performers - Dakarayi Mashava, Sydney Robertson, Ted Rogers

Reviews of Masc 4 Marginalisation

(...)an absorbing interrogation of the male gender.
- Graham Watts (Dancing Times)
Masc 4 Marginalisation, a richly symbolic take on contemporary LGBTQ+ identity. (...) “Forget the pigeon-holes,” Masc 4 Marginalisation seems to scream – “it’s better to fail together than to strive alone.”
- Amelia Forsbrook (Exuent Magazine)
Simple but effective. (...) Highly provocative.
- John O’Dwyer (Seen and Heard International)
