THE MISSING GENERATION is dance-theater that gives voice to longtime survivors of the early AIDS epidemic.
Through intimate storytelling and luscious partnering by a multi-generational ensemble of dancers, this powerful show is a love letter to a forgotten generation of survivors - those who witnessed and experienced the loss of an entire generation of gay and transgender people to AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s.
The San Francisco Bay Times calls this piece,"heartbreakingly beautiful - a dance portrait of contemporary LGBT history that is profoundly relevant to all generations."
THE MISSING GENERATION features full-throttle dance, luscious partnering, intimate storytelling and theater performed by Dorsey's stellar, multi-generational ensemble of dancers: Sean Dorsey, Brian Fisher, ArVejon Jones and Nol Simonse.
Dorsey traveled across the US to record oral history interviews with longtime survivors of the early AIDS epidemic -- including Boston choreographer-activist Peter DiMuro -- and wove excerpts of these interviews into a lush, multi-layered soundscore.
