Named one of the “Top 25 to Watch” by Dance Magazine, transgender trailblazer Sean Dorsey performs The Secret History of Love with his company, revealing the underground ways that LGBT people have loved each other in decades past.  1920s speakeasies, wartime love affairs, police raids, and steamy underground cabarets explode onstage with full-throttle dancing, riveting storytelling, luscious partnering and first-hand tales of tremendous risk, passionate love, and community, against all odds. The Secret History Of Love was created through a National LGBT Elders Oral History Project and features the voices and remarkable real-life stories of these pioneering elders. With special musical guest Shawna Virago.

This tour of Sean Dorsey Dance’s The Secret History of Love is made possible by a grant from Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
