The Outsider Chronicles premiered last year to sold out houses, overwhelming critical acclaim and standing ovations. You’ve been asking … and so now, back by audience demand, Fresh Meat Productions is pleased to present a special return engagement of Sean Dorsey’s acclaimed evening-length dance theater concert The Outsider Chronicles.
These full-bodied, powerful dances dive headfirst into the world of the ‘gender outsider’ – revealing aspects of coming out and living as transgender. With his Izzie Award-winning fusion of modern dance, theater and storytelling, Sean Dorsey puts a genderbent twist on foiled first love, lovers’ spats, coming out (or not) to family, road trips, “til death do us part” and the joys of therapy.
Performed by Sean Dorsey, Courtney Moreno and Sonia Reiter. Live musical interludes by Nejla Baguio, Marc Capelle and Shawna Virago.
Reservations are encouraged: these special return engagement shows will sell out quickly.
The Outsider Chronicles is Weekend Three of the month-long ManiFestival at Dance Mission(Dance Brigade’s Festival for Social Change).
The Outsider Chronicles was created with support from a San Francisco Arts Commission Individual Artist Commission.
