Trailblazing transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey returns to the MACC stage with “Boys in Trouble,” a new production that unpacks masculinity with unflinching honesty, from unapologetically trans and queer perspectives.
 
“Boys in Trouble” is an extravaganza of full-throttle dance, raw emotion, irreverent humor, exquisite queer partnering, and vulnerable storytelling … all performed with Sean Dorsey Dance’s signature precision, guts, and deep humanity. In turns powerful, explosive, devastatingly honest, humorous, and sexy,
 
“Boys in Trouble” offers an urgent and timely examination of American masculinity’s deep roots. With stark honesty, powerful storytelling and breathtaking dancing, the performance celebrates expansive trans and queer gender expression and moves audiences to examine their own assumptions and experiences of gender.
 
Sean Dorsey Dance’s award-winning, multi-generational ensemble performs these athletic dances with gusto – moving seamlessly between full-throttle dancing, live speaking and intimate storytelling. Note: Performance includes profanity and some themes of violence.
