101 Rent Boys (2000)

Plot Outline:
Interesting documentary from 2000 where they interview male prostitutes.

101 Rent Boys is shot on location in various motel rooms situated on the length of the Santa Monica Boulevard, and features 101 different hustlers. Although the film features 101 different people, it focuses on the lives (and loves) of a few key men. They have been chosen to reflect the immense diversity of the boys of the Santa Monica Strip. An amazing thing happens when you cross a video camera with award-winning directors, $50 and a hustler. The pieces are slickly grouped to cover certain themes; such as their first john, gay for pay, homelessness, drugs or the reason that they began to work as a rent boy. It also explores the variety of insiders' opinion on subjects such as; how a rent boy should dress, speak, act, think, give head, receive head, increase cash flow, keep safe, walk, eat, smoke, and flirt

Reviews:
Despite the title, this is not a rehash of HBO's "Real Sex" series, as the title may suggest. Instead, we get a poignant, exceptional documentary about life on the streets and how male prostitutes are certainly real people. Truly unflattering, touching, and very graphic.

DV8 Dead Dreams of Monochrome Men

1989

From : An Essay on Lloyd Newson's Physical Theatre

Dead Dreams of Monochrome Men was a consolidation of the homosexual focus built on male relationships explored in Newson's first piece. The work based on the life of the serial killer Dennis Nilsen who lured his male victims back to his flat before murdering them, plunged into a very dark and sadistic side of homoeroticism and one that was threatened by death.

Going way beyond political statements about homosexuality into extremes, Dead Dreams was a depiction of the utter despair and gloomy consequences of repressed love.

The first half was set in a club where Nilsen often picked up his victims. The whole process of the hunter seeking out his victim was played out through convincing body language, gestures and glances by the cast of four men including Newson. (Newson performed in most of the earlier works as he felt that by participating he could get a better sense of the quality of the work.) Scenes from a hard-core gay club and the darkroom were played out. The performers struck bodybuilder poses on top of pedestals, while a couple clutched and dragged one another, one active, the other passive, struggling, suffering, enacting the sordid penalties paid for the price of love.

The second half moved to a gloomy bedsit, the site of Nilsen's carnage. Two naked lifeless bodies were dragged around, then one was suspended upside down from the rafters while the other was laid out on bathroom tiles. Both bodies were like carcasses, passive slabs of meat, victims of the male meat market whose sex has to be practised illicitly underground away form the public eye. Scenes of drowning a lover in the bath, which was one of the murder methods Nilsen used, or abusing another, blindfolded, clocked up the disturbing images, variations of which have appeared in later works. For example, the sex scene where one man is crawling or pumping against another body and doesn't notice when that body moves away, or bodies either emerging out of water, or falling form a huge height into an empty void, suggesting betrayed trust. Or the action of kissing a victim on the mouth and using the kiss to drag the body along the ground or to suck out its life force, painting a double-edged picture of sexual violence and abuse.

The source material for Dead Dreams was taken from the book by Brian Masters entitled Killing For Company and images from the book were carefully woven with images from Newson's own powerful image repertoire. Subtle movement and frozen poses were juxtaposed with fast and dangerous contact work, furious outbursts which showed sensitive awareness of pace and timing. Newson's outstanding skill in crafting movement and form to match the content was revealed at its best. Even in his other work, where content has been more flakey or the focus less intense, the choreography has always provided a sound backup, both in terms of structure and form, showing his innate understanding of how to create theatre.

The work was made into a film for London Weekend Television's South Bank Show directed by frequent DV8 collaborator, film director David Hinton. As a result of this coverage (South Bank Show is a mainstream arts documentary programme with a large viewing audience), Newson made front page tabloid news and was the subject of much controversy because of his blatant depiction of sex and death.

Considered to be DV8's most powerful epic to date, Dead Dreams proved that physical theatre could tackle complex issues without simplifying or sensationalising its subject. Both choreographer and performers worked into such emotional and physical depths and into such dangerous territory that they had to change their direction after making the film. As one of the dancers said about being in Dead Dreams: "... it is like cutting yourself with a knife. How long do you keep cutting yourself? And while people are amazed that you cut yourself on stage publicly … how much do you keep doing it, repeating the same action? I won't continue to cut myself, I now need to find another that goes beyond that."

Long-standing DV8 performer Nigel Charnock went off to pursue his own comedy work for some light relief while Newson made a film for Channel 4 called Never Again (1989) which used the location of an empty warehouse, included a large cast of male and female performers and dealt with relationships on a more general level. Never Again was less intense, powerful or focused than Dead Dreams, or, indeed. previous DV8 works but was more an exploration of the medium of film. Film has always been an important part of Newson's process and extensive video documentation has been made of most of the works.
