You know how we love our contemporary dance...

This is a striking, harrowing and monumentally moving example.

Sound, music, choreography & direction...blisteringly good.

The(ir) Blurb...

Logan is a 16 year old boy whose mother just passed away and now is left alone with his abusive father, Vince. Afraid that his son is not manly enough, or even worse, homosexual, Vince tattoos on Logan's body words that will force him to remember what kind of man he shouldn't be; weak, fragile, feminine and worthless. As the story continues, Logan is able to connect with his mom spiritually in order to find the strength to accept himself and his sexuality. When he confronts his father with his new found strength, it is realized that just like his son, Vince had repressed his emotions to such a degree that he couldn't bear to live with himself anymore.

Logan is left with a decision to either leave the physical world and join his mother or stay with his father. After the internal struggle, he decides to stay with his father after realizing that he might have found the strength to rise higher than the labels on his body and that some people need more time in embracing who they really are.
