On June 28, 2011, 42 years after the Stonewall riots, Pioneer Winter and Jared Sharon will present â€œ42: A Stonewall Prospective,â€ a live multi-disciplinary dance performance that combines film and large-scale props to recall the events leading to the uprising and violent protests which ignited the modern-day gay civil rights movement. The intimate event will include three live dance sections that will range from dark to humorous, along with the premiere of an original film to further expand the performance.
As an artist growing up in a post-Stonewall society, Pioneer Winter says he owes his freedom to his cohorts â€” the social advocates that paved the way for greater acceptance for an important segment of the population. â€œItâ€™s not always strife,â€ Winter says. â€œIt is a passion to progress.â€ – Neil de la Flor, Knight Arts
