Warped And Wept - An Examination of Masculinity and Tears
Woven into the warp and weft of human experience is the experience of crying. Social constructions of masculinity have the ability to modulate that experience, and the way that it's perceived, both inwardly and outwardly. "Warped and Wept", a multimedia performance created by Costa Kazaleh Sirdenis, Matthew Daher, and Michael Malis, explores the intersection between crying and masculinity.
