Chris Cochrane, Dennis Cooper, Ishmael Houston-Jones (New York City): THEM

Sieben durchtrainierte junge Männer umkreisen einander. Hin- und hergerissen zwischen Angst und Verlangen und Lust und Abscheu, prallen ihre Körper zusammen. Vorangetrieben von Chris Cochranes expressiven Gitarrenklängen und Dennis Coopers düsteren Texten über Tod und Selbstverlust stürzen sie gemeinsam zu Boden. 1986 hätte Ishmael Houston-Jones’ »THEM« beinahe zur Schließung des legendären New Yorker Kulturzentrums PS 122 geführt. 25 Jahre später hat er das schonungslose Werk über männliche Aggressivität und Sexualität und die omnipräsente Angst vor AIDS gemeinsam mit den Mitstreitern von damals an eine Generation junger Tänzer weitergegeben.

»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 famed writer / provocateur 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.
