The Male Quartet tackles how society boxes energy by gender and dictates how dance is displayed and which qualities belong which dancers. The piece comments on how the standards of gendered energies affect attraction and repulsion with in our own bodies and our perceptions of the bodies around us. We translate specific insecurities by displaying scenes of vulnerability and we aim to heal, educate, and mold ourselves by respectful hands.
