GENTLE/MEN marks the choreographic Houston debut of independent dance-maker, John Beasant III. The production is an evening-length concert of a series of contemporary dance suites, dance-film, and prose, featuring ten Houston-based professional male dance artists. The show celebrates men in dance, aims to advocate for acceptance of the American male dancer, and brings awareness of the art form from a male perspective. Mr. Beasant invites audiences to witness his unique presentation of an abstract narrative of physicality that highlights humanness through both virtuosity and femininity.
