THEM is an intensely physical interdisciplinary work that presents an unblinking look into the lives of young (gay) men. Conceived and directed by Ishmael Houston-Jones THEM features early texts by Dennis Cooper, and a cacophonous live electric guitar sound score by Chris Cochrane. Houston-Jones’ choreography, while rooted in improvisation develops the themes of connections that never quite happen, grappling and wrestling that seem inconsequential and ineffective, and support that disappears.
