Dances of Mark Dendy / Mark Dendy
American choreographer, playwright and actor
When I came here [to New York], in the early 1980s, I was wild and I was angry and I was going to destroy the closet of gay choreographers who pretended their dances were about men and women. I was going to have men dancing with men, and everybody in dresses.
