BOYS LIKE US (2017) – a work in progress
Featuring Sam von Wentz and Ryan Walker Page, Boys Like Us, considers the vulnerability, isolation and desire for connection felt by adolescent guys coming into their identity as gay men.
A highly-collaborative process with the dancers–employing the rich authenticity of improvisation, a triangulation of our shared and disparate experiences, abstracted in time and space–this work (in progress) offers a glimmer into what it is like to be Boys Like Us.
