THE SECRET HISTORY OF LOVE reveals the underground ways that LGBT people managed to survive and love each other in decades past. This powerful dance-theater production returns to San Francisco as part of its 20-city US tour. Don’t miss this one-weekend-only engagement with “San Francisco’s Best Dance Company” (SF Weekly).

1920’s speakeasies, wartime love affairs, police raids and steamy underground cabarets come alive onstage in this groundbreaking work by transgender trailblazer Sean Dorsey. Advance tickets recommended.

Created during a 2-year National LGBT Elders Oral History Project, The Secret History Of Love features the voices and life stories Dorsey recorded in oral history interviews – along with powerful, moving and hilarious episodes from the LGBT community’s remarkable history of finding love and community, against enormous odds.

The Secret History Of Love features full-throttle dancing, riveting storytelling, luscious partnering and first-hand tales of tremendous risk, passionate love, impossible courage, heart-breaking loss, and bold resistance – revealing the great resiliency and strength of the human heart … even in the face of great danger and devastating violence.

The Secret History Of Love features a stellar cast of performers: Sean Dorsey, Juan De La Rosa, Brian Fisher, Nol Simonse and special musical guest Shawna Virago.
