THE MISSING GENERATION is a new dance-theater work that gives voice to longtime survivors of the early AIDS epidemic. This powerful show is a love letter to a forgotten generation of survivors – those who witnessed and experienced the loss of part of an entire generation of gay and transgender people to AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s.
Sean Dorsey created the work over a 2-year period by conducting oral history interviews with longtime survivors of the early AIDS epidemic, doing archival research, and hosting Community Residencies in 6 cities across the US. Read more about “The Missing Generation LGBT/AIDS Oral History Project”.
THE MISSING GENERATION features full-throttle dance, luscious partnering, intimate storytelling and theater – performed by Dorsey’s stellar, multi-generational ensemble of dancers: Sean Dorsey, Brian Fisher, ArVejon Jones and Nol Simonse. Sean Dorsey is an award-winning transgender and queer choreographer who has toured his work to 25 cities across the US.
