Don’t miss the world premiere of The Secret History Of Love (Part I)  –  a new concert by Sean Dorsey Dance. 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 these new dances. From 1920’s speakeasies to Craigslist Personals, the “love that dared not speak its name” explodes onstage in these new dances. The Secret History Of Love: Part I features sections of the full concert which will premiere in March 2012.

Features a stellar cast of dancers and performers: Juan De La Rosa, Sean Dorsey, Brian Fisher, Nol Simonse and Shawna Virago. Original music by Jesse Olsen Bay, Ben Kessler and Keith Kenniff; Sound Engineering by Laura Dean; oral history contributions from Felicia Elizondo; Lighting Design by Clyde Sheets; Costume Design by Tiffany Amundson; Production Assistance by Marisa Mariscotti.

The Secret History Of Love is being created with generous support from the Creative Work Fund (a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund supported by generous grants from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The James Irvine Foundation), the San Francisco Arts Commission, the National Performance Network and the Queer Cultural Center.
