All Tomorrow's Parties is a dance performance that investigates how hiv and aids affected the Norwegian dance scene in the 80s and 90s. Several Norwegian dancers got infected by the virus, lived with hiv, and died of aids. Who were they? How did they dance? And what kind of dances would they have performed had they not passed away?
All Tomorrow's Parties tries to map out the hole that these artists left behind, and try to fill it by staging a dance that never happened. All Tomorrow's Parties is a fictional ‘enactment’ of dances that never got performed.

The back wall of the theater, this black velvet curtain wall closes the space in over 40 minutes, swiping away the belongings of the performers and restricting their scenic space. Once the curtain arrives all the way to the front, letting the audience face the black curtain and its abyss, the performers open the curtain and invite the audience to a party.
