Saturday, November 5
At the LGBT Center

Man Question is thrilled to have partnered with New York City's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center to produce the 4th New Masculinities Festival, in New York City on Saturday, November 5, 2016!


At the New Masculinities Festival, we examine the impact of expectations of masculinity on people's lives and imagine new possibilities for gender expression. We use the power of theatre, dance, poetry, spoken word, performance art, and dialogue to challenge thinking and transport participants to new worlds and perspectives.

past New Masculinities Festivals

Our first Festival took place on September 8, 2012 and featured "Saving Seneka," an original play by inmates at Garner Correctional Institution, directed by Keith Johnston, Artistic Director of the American Theatre of Harlem.  The other performers filled the historic Judson Memorial Church's meeting hall with dance, song, theatre, and unbridled giggles.  Friends and family filled Judon's buffet with delicious home-made food.  We ended with thirty minutes of dialog, which centered around the courage to dance.
