Keith Hennessy announces details of his 2009 - 2010 season, which runs December 9, 2009 through January 31, 2010. Keith Hennessy’s A Queer 20th Anniversary will be a retrospective of two seminal pieces performed by Keith Hennessy & company including SALIVA (1989)— A restaging at the original site under a freeway South of Market in San Francisco (12/13/09), a talk & video presentation a few days before the performance (12/9/09) with a panel including artists Kirk Read and Philip Huang to discuss gay men, queer performance and AIDS, then & now - presented by Shaping SF as part of the Art + Politics TALK series at CounterPULSE; and HOW TO DIE (2005 - 06) — A performance by Keith Hennessy with Jules Beckman & Seth Eisen at Dance Mission Theatre (1/15 - 17/10). A highlight of the season will be the West Coast Premiere of CROTCH (all the Joseph Beuys references in the world…)(2008) — A performance by
Keith Hennessy at Dance Mission (1/29 - 31/10). CROTCH had its US premiere at NY’s Dance Theater Workshop in April 2009, garnering much acclaim by NY critics: “an outré, charged solo” - NY Times.
The season is rounded out with TOO MUCH! A queer marathon: 10 hours of performance, video, a dinner hour, a make-out room, & a dance party, co-produced with and staged at Mama Calizo’s Voice Factory in SF (1/10/10). For info please call 415/401-9376.

Keith Hennessy’s A Queer 20th Anniversary celebrates the 20th anniversary of Hennessy’s coming out
solo performance SALIVA, with a full season of events including performances, publications, and a queer performance marathon. The performances — one premiere and two restaged works - will be complimented by both teaching and archive projects. All will be marked by a complex approach to socially-conscious autobiography and the evolution of an accessible, subversive and queer voice. Additionally the season highlights grassroots arts spaces and their contributions to aesthetic experimentation and community organizing in San Francisco.

20 years ago 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. SALIVA was also presented at Highways in LA, was featured in the national gay magazine The Advocate (1990), and has since inspired chapters in two academic books: Gay Ideas by Richard Mohr (1992) and How To Make Dances in an Epidemic, the landmark study of AIDS and dance by David Gere (2004). Since 1989 Hennessy has created ten full-evening solo performances (while performing in and/or directing several noted collaborative companies). All of his work has been presented in San Francisco except CROTCH (2008). Since 1998 Hennessy’s work has also been commissioned and presented in Europe, mostly France.
