“San Francisco’s Best Dance Company.” —SF Weekly
“Trailblazing.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Evocative, compelling, elegant.”—LA Weekly
Sean Dorsey is a San Francisco–based choreographer whose works powerfully fuse full-throttle dance, luscious partnering, intimate storytelling, and theatre. Recognized as the nation’s first acclaimed transgender modern dance choreographer, Dorsey has been awarded five Isadora Duncan Dance Awards and the Goldie Award for Performance.
As America grapples with toxic masculinity and renewed attacks on trans and LGBTQ rights, Sean Dorsey Dance’s newest work, BOYS IN TROUBLE, will powerfully unpack masculinity with unflinching honesty from unapologetically trans and queer perspectives. Highly physical, accessible, and rooted in story, each timely and urgent piece is performed with precision, guts, and deep humanity. A moderated discussion will follow the performances.
Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative. Organized by the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance. Co-sponsored by the LGBT Resource Center.
