Uncovered: The Diary Project
Due to the popularity of this production we have added a new showtime!! Tickets are now being sold for Sunday, Feb 1 @ 4 pm!!
Named Best Dance/Performance Company by the SF Weekly, Sean Dorsey returns with a stellar cast of dancers to chase the naked truth in Uncovered: The Diary Project. Using text from actual, real-life diaries, Uncovereds powerful dances reveal lives and stories that history has tried to erase. Out spill diary secrets, bathhouse antics, outrageous love, pop idols, misadventures, impossible courage and the importance of documenting and sharing our history.
This highly anticipated concert is the culmination of a year-and-a-half long research process in which Dorsey uncovered and researched diaries of transgender and queer people from the famous to the unknown. Uncovered features the world premiere of Lou, a suite of dances based on the lifelong journals of Lou Sullivan (1951-1991), a Bay Area transsexual gay man and pioneering activist; and the story of an imaginary boyhood based on a very real diary. Uncovered offers an evening of full-bodied, powerful dances honoring remarkable life stories.
Uncovered: The Diary Project features an outstanding cast of performers: Sean Dorsey, Brian Fisher, Juan de la Rosa and Nol Simonse. Uncovered is presented by Fresh Meat Productions and the Queer Cultural Center and was generously commissioned by the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation and the San Francisco Arts Commission.
