As the topics of masculinity, gender and sexuality become more and more accessible in mainstream American culture, rapper, poet, and educator Sean Avery debuts their two-part Hip-Hop project, skinnyblk. Simultaneously an album and play, skinnyblk is a multimedia journey through Avery’s life that celebrates being both Black and gender non-binary by confronting the stigmas of toxic masculinity and race through interdisciplinary performance art.

Written and performed by Avery, directed and produced by Dr. Tamika Sanders, music by rapper and beatmaker Mic Maven, and both choreographed and performed by a rotating ensemble of performance artists, skinnyblk uses anime, superheroes, dance, rap, and spoken word to challenge the lines separating “boy” and “girl” as Avery struggles to discover their authentic self.

Written & Performed by Sean Avery
Directed & Produced by Dr. Tamika Lamb
Music by Mic Maven
Choreographed & Performed by Shelley Jackson, Raji Ganesan & Justin Villalobos.
Lights by Joel Hamilton

Held at ASU Media & Performing Arts Building, Empty Space Theater (black box)

Sponsored by Performance in the Borderlands, Savvy Pen & The Hugh Downs School of Human Communication

Filmed & Edited by Francisco Monarezz
