    Sex is different now. There are new questions. And lies.

    The Bugchasers is an evening-length performance that explores the nature of desire in a marginalized world where new forms of communication and a fraught sexual epidemiology have altered the experience of intimacy.
    Bugchasers are young men who compulsively seek to become HIV positive, eroticizing risk in a game of viral Russian roulette where the shared bond of a
    communicable disease substitutes for love.

    The Bugchasers incorporates theater, dance, music and video to ask whether the human need for belonging and contact has led to a new eroticism or become a monstrous force for self-annihilation.

    It is a story of accelerated love in our time.

    Who is that person on the other side of the mattress? How can you be sure?

    WARNING: This performance is not recommended for a first date.
