Sean Dorsey’s “Boys in Trouble”
Sean Dorsey’s “Boys in Trouble”
Thursday, April 11, 2019; Castle Theater; 7:30 pm
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.
“Boys in Trouble” was created with generous support from the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project (with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation), National Performance Network, California Arts Council, Creative Work Fund (a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation), Fleishhacker Foundation, Queer Cultural Center, Kenneth Rainin Foundation, San Francisco Arts Commission, and the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation.
“Boys in Trouble” was commissioned by Bates Dance Festival, Dance Place (Washington, DC), Highways Performance Space (Los Angeles, CA), Maui Arts & Cultural Center (Maui, HI), Seven Stages (Atlanta, GA), and the Queer Cultural Center (San Francisco, CA).

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are a hip-hop group from Cleveland, Ohio formed in 1991. The group originally consisted of two siblings, their half-brother, their cousin, and a lifelong friend who all took on the last name of ‘Bone’ to recognize the ‘bone-deep bond between them’ – Layzie Bone, Flesh-N-Bone, Bizzy Bone, Krayzie Bone, and Wish Bone. Rapper Eazy-E of the group N.W.A signed Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to Ruthless Records in 1994. The group’s debut EP, Creepin On Ah Come Up, included two top 40 hits, “Thuggish Ruggish Bone” and “Foe Tha Love of $.” In 1995, their full-length album, E. 1999 Eternal, followed featuring another top 40 hit, “1st of Tha Month.” An updated version of “Crossroad” from the album renamed “Tha Crossroads,” became a smash hit holding the #1 spot in the U.S. for eight weeks. The group scored five more top 40 hits over the next ten years. They have continued to record and release their unique brand of street rap melded with lush R&B harmonies. All ages.
