The Quiet Man Suite was the culmination of the Boys Dancing project work in 2012, resulting in the making of six dance films with boys and young men from across the region. Dance for film is a strong and growing art form but the making of dance films with boys in the community is rare. The Quiet Man Suite will place the boys of the West Midlands in the forefront of that activity.
The Quiet Man Suite explores issues of masculinity, strength, sensitivity, independence and cooperation and challenges stereotypes. More specifically, it asks young men to reflect on issues of social justice.
An independent evaluation of the impact of The Quiet Man Suite on participants was commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre. Find out more here.
