From Timothy Blacker on 05/10/2019
Explore the creative process behind Cynthia Oliver's Virago-Man Dem.
This mini-documentary focuses on a work from Oliver, a Bessie Award-winning professor of dance and the Associate Vice Chancellor for Research in the Humanities, Arts, and Related Fields at Illinois. The dance explores the cultures particular to Caribbean and African-American men and male-identified folk using movement, spoken word and original music. The creative work involved artist and designers from across the College of Fine and Applied Arts who appear in interviews throughout the video.
