Sean Dorsey is a trailblazing transgender choreographer, and the founder of Fresh Meat Productions, an annual transgender and queer performance festival.

Sean has a new show premiering in San Francisco this week called Boys In Trouble. The show comes out of two years of research, during which Sean traveled across the country, hosting community forums about masculinity and interviewing people about gender.

 

He came to KALW's studios to talk with Jen Chien about what that process was like.

 

"The work really deeply calls on each of our experiences, the five of us who are dancer-collaborators in the process. The work really asked us to dig deep."
