Event Details

In 1988/89 Keith Hennessy created Saliva, an interdisciplinary dance-performance-ritual under a freeway in downtown San Francisco. Deep within the rage and grief of the AIDS crisis, Hennessy performed a ritualistic reclamation of the body, the queer male body, as holy.

Tonight, revisit this historic performance with video excerpts, live performance, historical context, and audience discussion combine to recreate this AIDS-era work of queer performance. With Kirk Read and Philip Huang in conversation.
