Part dance, theater, and film, "Cabin" explores violence, the complexities of queer desire and intimacy, and the lines between biography and fiction.
It follows three queer men and the creation and destruction of their relationship in a cabin in the woods. It is a story, but it is also about story itself, how story is told and how disparate forms of expression can serve in the evocation of the feelings and sensations of memory.
