photo2_Greenberg_Not About AIDS Dance_1994_Elbers



Not-About-AIDS-Dance was 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 complemented the choreography's theme of revealing the hidden or unspoken in order 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.
