Named Best Dance/Performance Company by the SF Weekly, Sean Dorsey returns with a stellar cast of dancers to chase the naked truth in Uncovered: The Diary Project. Using text from actual, real-life diaries, Uncovered’s powerful dances reveal lives and stories that history has tried to erase. Out spill diary secrets, bathhouse antics, outrageous love, pop idols, misadventures, impossible courage and the importance of documenting and sharing our history.

This highly anticipated concert is the culmination of a year-and-a-half long research process in which Dorsey uncovered and researched diaries of transgender and queer people – from the famous to the unknown. Uncovered features the world premiere of Lou, a suite of dances based on the lifelong journals of Lou Sullivan (1951-1991), a Bay Area transsexual gay man and pioneering activist; and the story of an imaginary boyhood based on a very real diary. Uncovered offers an evening of full-bodied, powerful dances honoring remarkable life stories. More info at: http://www.freshmeatproductions.org.
