Sean Dorsey Dance is thrilled to celebrate CounterPULSE’s 4th anniversary and perform at the May Day Festival. Sean Dorsey and Nol Simonse perform Perfect Day, a duet excerpt from ‘Lou,’ a suite of dances based on the lifelong journals of Lou Sullivan that premiered this year at Dorsey’s Uncovered: The Diary Project concert.

Lou Sullivan (1951-1991) was a transsexual gay man who lived in San Francisco and was a trailblazing activist, organizer and writer. Before his death, Sullivan bequeathed 30 years of his journals, letters and papers to the GLBT Historical Society in order to leave a companion for other transgender people, to educate and open minds, and to ensure that the progress he had struggled a lifetime for would not be lost. To create ‘Lou,’ Dorsey researched, compiled and distilled 30 years of Sullivan’s journal writings into an original soundscore and choreographed a suite of dances based on Sullivan’s remarkable journey. Perfect Day is a love duet set during Lou’s final days before his death from AIDS.

Don’t miss this incredible gathering of twenty-five of the Bay Area’s hottest dance companies, theater companies, spoken-word artists and musicians performing over three days to raise money for CounterPULSE-at their BIGGEST birthday ever!
