For this project, We have been playing with several rounds of cuts that bend and amplify binary stereotypes to keep the conversation about how far we can exceed different modes of masculinity. And to be specific, we’re talking about Big Dick Energy.
WaldenDobbs Collective (WS Collective) is looking forward to creating more creative research projects in the near future. The research has only just begun.
BDE: I Think We Found It
Let us tease the binary for you.
A research-based project that explores the definition of big dick energy. This short film portrays modes of masculinity found within dance, movement, and bodies. Allowing space to seep into the vast fluid spectrum.
