Boys in Trouble places trans and queer gender-expansiveness front and center. Explosive, sensual, widely accessible, rooted in story and brimming with humor, the work features a lush sound score that layers Dorsey’s own writing paired with the ensemble’s own stories about navigating “outsider” masculinities.
Sean Dorsey, who previously performed his groundbreaking “The Missing Generation” at Bates, is an award-winning San Francisco-based choreographer, dancer and writer who is recognized as the nation’s first acclaimed transgender modern dance choreographer. Powerful explorations of human experience, Dorsey’s works have been praised as “trailblazing” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “evocative, compelling, elegant” (LA Weekly).
