This talk (also the title of a book in progress by Dr. Broomfield) examines sexual passing and the multidimensionality of African-American dancer-choreographers in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century who negotiate the performance, perception, and representation of the black male dancing against a backdrop of entrenched stereotypes about Western theatrical dance.
