what he's showing at crawl 

SEE DICK DANCE is a satirical look at gender roles with in the queer community. Maypole captures the awkward, unclear, denim-clad moments of a first co-ed birthday party. A lyrical jazz solo encapsulates the feelings of a kid who has a small bladder and fears slumber parties. And finally, a video looks at feelings of an only child growing up gay in a small town. Simultaneously a critical look at gay stereotypes and gender roles and a comical, enjoyable, movement extravaganza, Jordan Isadore's four short works for CRAWL remix actual memories with fantasy to create a new, hyper-physical memory.
