'Maskulinity' dancers explore race, violence, sexuality and interpersonal relationships

You could call it dance, or you could say it's a "contemporary movement performance project with choreography." Either way, Maskulinity, directed by Ras Mikey C, who's the director of education for an arts and entertainment company called F.I.V.E. (an acronym for "Fore I'm A Versatile Entertainer"), brings together dancers from New Haven, South Windsor and Ansonia, and others from Brattleboro, Vt., for an exploration of race, violence, sexuality and interpersonal relationships — through dance. It's produced by Salix Productions, whose mission is to "create collaborative performances that illustrate women's experiences while inspiring change."
