Black Bodies Gone Down

Black Bodies Down is a multidisciplinary performance art installation focusing around themes of using Black masculinity as sexual politics, Black femininity, structured racism practices in media and using performance art as radical healing. Black Bodies stems from the idea of collecting internalized traumas and creating performance images to combat hypermasculine stereotypes against people of color. These pieces are in conjunction to developing a somatic inspired disciplinary practice through a pre/post colonized african american and afrofuturist lens.
