Pleasures of the Flesh

Transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey, feted earlier this year for the return of his award-winning program Secret History of Love, and whose leaping figure now adorns Market Street bus shelters, shares the love with other out-and-proud ensembles and solo artists in the 12th annual Fresh Meat Festival of Transgender and Queer Performance. Featuring 10 acts by LGBT performers, including hip-hop choreographer Allan Frias' Mind Over Matter and the variously abled dancers of AXIS Dance Company (both of So You Think You Can Dance fame), as well as Appalachian cloggers, taiko drummers, bomba dancers, humorists, musicians, poets, and Dorsey's own modern dance company, the Fresh Meat Festival bends genres and genders in a highly anticipated, packed evening. Each night finishes with an after-party with DJ Miz Rowdy, dancing, drinking, and a photobooth. Come to watch, stay to be seen.

June 20-22, 8 p.m., 2013
