“Ballet is heteronormative. These artists are fixing that.”—SF Weekly

Trailblazing transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey returns to the stage with BOYS IN TROUBLE, a new evening of dances that unpack masculinity with unflinching honesty—from unapologetically trans and queer perspectives.

True Transsexual Confessions. An unabashed love letter between queer Black men. A send-up of all things Macho. A queer spin on butchness. Real talk about whiteness. An invitation to look deeply at Shame. A witness to hurt and heartbreak. A road map for another way.

Note: adult language and some themes of violence.

$20 ($15 member)
