Thursday, Mar 2, 2017 - 7:30 PM

THE MISSING GENERATION is a powerful dance-theater work that gives voice to longtime survivors of the early AIDS epidemic. The show is a love letter to a forgotten generation of survivors – those who witnessed and experienced the loss of part of an entire generation of gay and transgender people to AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s.

Dorsey created the work over a two-year period by conducting oral history interviews with longtime survivors of the early AIDS epidemic, doing archival research, and hosting community residencies in six cities across the U.S.

THE MISSING GENERATION features full-throttle dance, luscious partnering, intimate storytelling, and theater – performed by an award-winning, multigenerational ensemble of dancers: Sean Dorsey, Brian Fisher, ArVejon A. Jones, and Nol Simonse.

The powerful oral history interviews that Dorsey recorded are woven into a lush, multilayered sound score, along with original music by Alex Kelly, Jesse Olsen Bay, Ben Kessler, and Jeffrey Alphonsus Mooney.

Sean Dorsey is an award-winning transgender choreographer who has toured his work to 26 cities across the U.S.
