The Ruins Series

Produced by Steph Be

Ruins' is an interdisciplinary project displayed through live-performance, film & photography. This work is a testimony of the generational trauma inherited by men from marginalised groups with the mission of creating a space where the black male figure is more visible & honestly represented in its full complexity. Through movement and visual art, we want to open a dialogue surrounding the myth of masculinity as it is felt within the Pan-African diaspora. We are deconstructing the power struggle within ourselves and finding the balance between conflict, vulnerability, and codependency. Allowing us to own and repair our deeper anxieties that we have learned so well to mask.
