by BWW News Desk - Oct 21, 2010

THEM is an intensely physical interdisciplinary work that presents an unblinking look into the lives and interactions of young, gay men. Conceived and directed by Ishmael Houston-Jones, THEM features provocative 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.

Chris Cochrane to Perform at Performace Space 122, 10/21-30Chris Cochrane to Perform at Performace Space 122, 10/21-30
by BWW News Desk - Oct 21, 2010

Chris Cochrane (music) in collaboration with Ishmael Houston-Jones (dance) and Dennis Copper (text) reconstruct THEM , an incendiary work addressed some of the many ways men could be with men. After a successful run of the work-in-progress at PS122 in 1985 the creators of THEM felt that the urgency of the AIDS epidemic demanded a presence in this piece about men with men. In the 1986 premier of the full-length version for six male dancers at PS122 Cooper read his own provocative words, and Cochrane played cacophonous electric guitar live; frequently violent and exhausting dance sequences, culminated in a horrific duet between Houston-Jones and an animal carcass on a dusty mattress. The production almost got PS122 shut down. (more...)
