"We Two Boys"
We two boys together clinging, one the other never leaving..."
A translation of Walt Whitman's poem We Two Boys Together Clinging from language to movement. An investigation into the modern condition of masculinity and the tension that exists when men express their need for one another.
"We Two Boys" is a multi-layered duet between two men, that captures the timeless journey of love, attraction, struggle, and surrender. Viewers are drawn in, finding themselves wrestling with the stories of love and sexuality while being captivated by the familiarity of their own lives as the dance unfolds before them. "We Two Boys" is a powerful narrative of a relationship that transcends labels of "gay" or "straight" and becomes a provocative story of human nature.
Meshi Chavez's work has been called raw and visceral. We Two Boys builds on those descriptions by creating an overall sense of voyeurism. It delves headfirst into the tension, vulnerability, and tenacity that exist between two males fostering relationship with one another. Creating moments that at times feel private. Moments that often go unseen. Whitman's Poem provides the perfect springboard for pathway, imagery and consciousness.
