Sean Dorsey Dance's new work BOYS IN TROUBLE is now on a 2-year, 20-city international tour. Commissioned by six theaters across the US, BOYS IN TROUBLE unpacks masculinity with unflinching honesty and from unapologetically trans and queer perspectives. Dorsey is the founder and artistic director of Fresh Meat Productions, the nation's first nonprofit of its kind. Now in its 17th season, Fresh Meat Productions invests in the creative expression and cultural leadership of transgender and gender-nonconforming communities through year-round programs. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=338409 New York Live Arts New York Live Arts
