Ishmael Houston-Jones @ Tanz Im August
Conversation with Ishmael Houston-Jones (dance maker from New York City) about the piece THEM performed within the content of Tanz Im August 2012 festival in Berlin, Germany.
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.
