Virago-Man Dem navigates black masculinities through movement, and spoken language and visual design. Troubling the term “Virago”’s reference to characteristically male behaviors and female cultural transgressions, Virago-Man Dem is a nuanced study in the multiplicities of masculinity within cultures of Caribbean and African American communities. The work is based on the lives of its performers, Duane Cyrus, Jonathan Gonzalez, Shamar Watt, and Niall Noel Jones, and moves from their specific experiences to broader cultural trajectories.

It is always a joy to witness a new musical talent. Kristina Koller has become part of the New York City jazz scene in recent years, developing quickly into a highly individual jazz singer. Her sound is both timeless and contemporary. While she loves singing standards and straight ahead jazz, Kristina also enjoys arranging tunes in unusual ways, knowing that adding to the legacy of jazz is much more important than merely recreating the performances of others. She reinvents classic material while retaining their essence, putting her own winning personality and fresh ideas into the lyrics that she interprets.
