photo2_Greenberg_Not About AIDS Dance_1994_Elbers



Not-About-AIDS-Dance is a work choreographed by Neil Greenberg as a response to recent events in his life and  those of the dancers, specifically the death of Greenberg's brother, AIDS activist Jon Greenberg. The performance included texts and slides that complimented the choreography and theme of revealing the hidden or unspoken to increase the possibilities of intimacy between choreographer, performer, and audience. The piece was used significantly as a tool for coping with the painful reality of HIV/AIDS especially as it related to Greenberg's own revelation of his HIV+ status. The performance was revived in December that same year due to its popular reception and demand.
