Hailed as the nation’s first acclaimed transgender contemporary dance choreographer, Sean Dorsey’s works have been praised as “exquisite…poignant and important” (BalletTanz), “trailblazing” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “evocative, compelling, elegant” (LA Weekly). Based on oral history interviews that Sean recorded with survivors of the early AIDS epidemic The Missing Generation is a love letter to a forgotten generation of survivors, written in full-throttle dance, luscious partnering, intimate storytelling and theater.
