SEAN DORSEY WORKS WITH LGBTQ ELDERS

Sean Dorsey Dance WORKS WITH LGBTQ ELDERS
AND RECORDS ORAL HISTORIES FOR SEAN DORSEY DANCE’S SHOW
The Secret History Of Love!

Secret love affairs, the history of outlawing love and the underground ways that transgender and queer people found each other through the decades are revealed in the powerful dances of Sean Dorsey Dance’s upcoming new show The Secret History Of Love. Over the past two years, Sean Dorsey has been uncovering the ways that queer and transgender people managed to find – and love – each other in decades past. To create this new work, Sean has been doing extensive archival research and conducting and recording oral history interviews with LGBTQ elders.

Many thanks to these incredible LGBTQ elders for their oral history contributions to the project: Felicia Elizondo, Nicky Frausto, James Green, Pamela Quiton, Diego Sanchez and many others. Thanks also to Openhouse, The Theater Offensive and Engineer Laura Dean for their assistance.
