Recently honored with an Isadora Duncan Award for The Secret History of Love, a dance theater piece about the underground struggle to find and express love in the LGBT community, Sean Dorsey Dance takes a break from its 20-city American tour to say hello to the town where it all began — San Francisco. On the bill for its “2014 Home Season” is an excerpt from Dorsey's latest historical exploration, The Missing Generation, a new work drawing from Dorsey's interviews with LGBT survivors of the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s and '90s. The company also presents the 2009 work, Lou, based on the diaries of transgender activist Lou Sullivan. A dance is never just a dance for transgender choreographer Dorsey, who takes oral histories and archival work seriously and insists on making work that inspires audiences to laugh, cry, listen, and think.
