WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of COIL 2011 Co-Presented by AMERICAN REALNESS/tbspMGMT Them is an intensely physical interdisciplinary work that presents an unblinking look into the lives of young (gay) men and how they interact with one another. Conceived and directed by Ishmael Houston-Jones. Them/ features provocative texts by Dennis Cooper and a cacophonous live electric guitar 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. Them sparked controversy and almost got PS 122 shut down when it originally premiered in 1986. This contemporary reconstruction of Them looks back to its "aggressive and vital" (Village Voice, Supree) roots to present a portrait of the young (gay) men of today.
