Hero Complexities

FEATURED ARTWORK:

Hero Complexities

Hero Complexities, is an evening length dance and video installation created by Duane Cyrus that is inspired by the heroic acts of Charles W. David Jr., a Caribbean-American United States Coast Guardsman who lost his life helping to save nearly 100 drowning servicemen in the icy waters off Greenland during World War II. It investigates the possible confluence of questions surrounding themes of rescue, self-sacrifice, and heroism when black male bodies are positioned in hegemonic spaces. What does it mean to be problem and savior at the same time? And how do contemporary black bodies negotiate the dynamics that arise when intention meets perception?
