Boys in Trouble investigates modern masculine identity with four dancers who move seamlessly between full-throttle dance and beautiful “pas de deux.” The audience will be immersed in a lush, multi-layered score featuring excerpts of powerful recorded interviews, original music and Dorsey’s own narration. Sean Dorsey is the first widely-acclaimed transgender contemporary dance choreographer in the United States.

Recommended for adults ages 18 and older; younger audience members must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

 "I choreograph because my own story is untold; I need to dance it into being." – Sean Dorsey

"Sean Dorsey is a visionary and someone who has for years been at the forefront of both the arts and transgender culture" – San Francisco Bay Times
