Sean Dorsey Dancers Reflect on AIDS
and the Missing Generation
You may have missed the Sean Dorsey Dancers perform “The Missing Generation” this week, but you can join them in a discussion and free brunch at 1 p.m. and see them perform at 5 p.m. Sunday. The performance features recordings of real AIDS patients who lived through those rough times in the 1980s when the disease was first discovered. The gestural modern dance features some classic dance and minimal acting. Although the dance and acting techniques are not at high levels, the performance does project the feelings and voices of those who have suffered and those who died from the deadly virus. In the wake of the congressional hearing of Martin Shkreli, the pharma CEO who in September hiked up an AIDS drug more than 5,000 percent to $750 for one pill, the talk and dance are timely.
Sean Dorsey Dance presents a free brunch and discussion on AIDS at 1 p.m. and a performance of “The Missing Generation” Sunday, Feb. 7. at 7 Stages.
