The Gaze...No Homo

The Gaze...No HomoThe Gaze is a cycle of plays, New Media Series, and a #Digiplay Experience that examines the process of building culturally specific and queer works of color in historically white spaces. It tackles hard topics like systemic racism and the ways in which we at times implicate ourselves in our own trauma how both of these things can be true in the same time space continuum.

About The Gaze...No Homo
“We Can Never Go Back to Before” is a lyric from the musical Ragtime, a show based on a book about America at the turn of the century. It exemplifies how in a time of radical change there is no reaching back for normalcy or the nostalgia of the comforts we once knew.

The Gaze is a cycle of plays, New Media Series, and a #Digiplay Experience that examines the process of building culturally specific and queer works of color in historically white spaces. It tackles hard topics like systemic racism and the ways in which we at times implicate ourselves in our own trauma how both of these things can be true in the same time space continuum. It wrestles with the question:

Why strain to be free under a gaze fixed on your imprisonment when it’s you who is holding the key?
Why stay? Go where? No Homo is the first play in the cycle.

In between BLM protests and existential quarantine queries, Larry Powell adapted his play The Gaze...No Homo (2020/2021 Eugene O'Neill NPC Finalist) into a New Media Series. This series of twelve short-form episodes (presented in one on-demand sitting) is produced through artistic protest in support of All Black Lives—in these streets, in the entertainment industry and in the decolonized future we are demanding to see! It’s about an openly black queer artist navigating all the things while in a rehearsal process at a very white American Theatre festival. Presented in partnership with executive producer Angelica Robinson of Tell Me A Story Productions.
