BEHOLD! SEAN DORSEY DANCE – Boys in Trouble
May 18, 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm PDT$20.00 – $25.00
Trailblazing transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey returns to the stage with Boys in Trouble, a new evening of dances that unpack masculinity with unflinching honesty – from unapologetically trans and queer perspectives.
True Transsexual Confessions. An unabashed love letter between queer Black men. A sendup of all things Macho. A queer spin on butchness. Real talk about whiteness. An invitation to look deeply at Shame. A witness to hurt and heartbreak. A roadmap for another way.
Boys in Trouble is an extravaganza of full-throttle dance, raw emotion, irreverent humor, exquisite queer partnering and super-vulnerable storytelling … all performed with Sean Dorsey Dance’s signature precision, guts and deep humanity.
Sean Dorsey is celebrated as the nation’s first acclaimed transgender modern dance choreographer. His works have been praised as “exquisite…poignant and important” (BalletTanz), “trailblazing” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “evocative, compelling, elegant” (LA Weekly). Dorsey has toured his work to 30 cities.
The presentation of Sean Dorsey Dance – Boys in Trouble is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
