Description: LEGACY was founded in September, 1988, by Jeff Friedman. Jeff is a performer and choreographer and, at that time, a member of the AIDS Response Committee, a project of Dance Bay Area, the San Francisco Bay Area dance community's service and advocacy organization. The Committee recognized that all the arts disciplines had suffered a severe loss of creative individuals during the AIDS health crisis, with subsequent losses of personal experiences and observations of important events, trends and periods of history. As a temporal art form which resists print documentation in the form of print texts or scores, dance is particularly vulnerable to the loss of this primary historical material.
