Confronting questions of masculinity, race, sexuality and religion, the Leaves find strength in the prophetic words of Frederick Douglass and other Black poet-philosophers. Their wisdom, derived from pain, guides them toward self-actualization. Through this, they shine light on family dynamics, the continued struggle with systemic racism, and the ever empowering, but complex relationship with God.
Black Leaves Dance Company is an all-Black, all-male, queer-inclusive dance company specializing in modern ballet, highlighting the stories and perspectives of Black men in America. We explore themes related to identity and self-actualization: questions of masculinity, sexuality, religion, and race.
