Sean Dorsey, a transgender contemporary dance choreographer, will bring a dance performance to Reston Community Center as part of a 20-city tour on Wednesday, May 16.
The show, Boys in Trouble, investigates modern masculine identity from the perspective of transgender and queer perspectives. The score includes excerpts from recorded interviews, original music and narration by Dorsey.
Dorsey created the show after visiting communities across the country to host forums on masculinity and to teach workshops for transgender, gender non-conforming, cisgender, gay, bi and queer individuals in the masculine spectrum.
Reston Community Center’s CenterStage is one of the first stops for the national tour. According to organizers, the dances will “move audiences to examine their own assumptions and experiences of gender.”
Tickets are $15 for Restonians and $20 for all others. The performance contains profanity and some themes of violence.
