Written 1978–9. A ballet in six movements. The boy of the title, isolated at the start, sets off optimistically to change the world; dances with different characters, endures trials and disappointments, and eventually finds his true identity. The character of the boy is played by two identical dancers who merge at the end. An absorbing allegory about coming out as a gay man.
