Spotlight: performance as art, art as performance.
Bromance is a series of performances and conversations that seek to open new possibilities for rethinking both American masculinity and feminism. The first event will be a spotlight performance on July 18, 2013. This performance will explore American masculinity through performing objects and video. On July 27, 2013 I will host a panel discussion that will feature local artists and writers to discuss masculinity, feminism, and queerness. — J.R. Uretsky
