Great Falls Forum

Lewiston Public Library

Our Great Falls Forum featured speaker for September 15th at 12 PM is Sean Dorsey, Choreographer with Sean Dorsey Dance. In a multimedia presentation entitled “Unearthing Buried LGBTQ History Through Modern Dance,” Sean will share video excerpts of a recent trilogy of dance works that explore our contemporary relationship to censored, buried, or forgotten parts of LGBTQ history. Taken together, these three works constitute a tour de force exploration and articulation of contemporary human experience.

Sean Dorsey is an award-winning San Francisco-based choreographer, dancer, and writer. Recognized as the nation’s first acclaimed transgender modern dance choreographer, Dorsey has won audiences and accolades from San Francisco to New York with his powerful dance-theater.

Dorsey’s dances are powerful explorations of human experience. His works are a fusion of full-throttle dance, luscious partnering, intimate storytelling and theater. Highly physical, accessible, rooted in story, and danced with precision and guts and deep humanity, Dorsey’s works have been praised as “exquisite…poignant and important” (BalletTanz), “trailblazing” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “evocative, compelling, elegant” (LA Weekly). Dorsey has toured his work to over 25 US cities and has been awarded major support and commissions by the National Endowment for the Arts, National Dance Project, and Bates Dance Festival, among others.
