In this new evening-length work, Tere O’Connor uses the body as a site for transformation. Part expression, part exorcism, and part political observation, Cover Boy processes multiple layers of the closeted gay experience into an organically complex dance; a choreographic essay on the socially charged nature of “otherness.” Cover Boy is performed by Michael Ingle, Niall Jones, Paul Monaghan, and Matthew Rogers. The work includes an original score by O’Connor’s longtime collaborator, composer James Baker, with set design by Aptum Architecture (Roger Hubeli and Julie Larsen) and costume design by FACADE/FASAD.

Presented as part of Danspace Project’s 2011-12 Commissioning Initiative, Cover Boy is made possible, in part, with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional support has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, the Vapnek Family Fund, and the University of Illinois Research Board. Cover Boy was created in residence at the Baryshnikov Arts Center, Mt. Tremper Arts Festival, and through LMCC’s Residency Program at Governors Island.
