“breathtaking” (San Francisco Bay Guardian)
“words and gestures drenched with the kind of raw honesty that’s made Dorsey an artistic force to reckon with” (SF Weekly)
“exquisite…poignant and important” (BalletTanz)
These full-bodied, powerful dances dive headfirst into the world of the ‘gender outsider’ – revealing aspects of coming out and living as transgender. With his Izzie Award-winning fusion of modern dance, theater and storytelling, Sean Dorsey puts a genderbent twist on foiled first love, lovers’ spats, coming out (or not) to family, road trips, “til death do us part” and the joys of therapy.
Performed by Sean Dorsey, Mair Culbreth (2005), Courtney Moreno (2006) and Sonia Reiter (2006). Live music performed by Nejla Baguio, Marc Capelle and Shawna Virago.
