Defiant Masculinity

2021
KHONSU X and Titan

Defiant Masculinity is a radio theatre production born out of The Broken Bois Series–a compilation of transmissions exploring how social constructs of masculinity have been historically warped by media. Through dissonance, intermodulation, and resonance, the play follows a trans-man and his trusty radio as he traverses a sea of cultural influences. A three-hour soundscape will be developed during the Wave Farm Residency, incorporating five nights of live broadcasts and recording sessions with WGXC listeners guided by curated audio prompts. The final product should be a puzzle left unsolved, spurring the mind to continual thought and dialogue about how masculinity presents in our world today through diverse male perspectives.
