Sean Dorsey Dance’s 2022 Home Season offers an exclusive first look at excerpts from our upcoming new show The Lost Art Of Dreaming. This new show-in-progress is being created this year, and the full show will premiere in Fall 2022.

SDD’s new multi-year project The Lost Art Of Dreaming invites us into expansive Future thinking and imagination. What does it feel like to reconnect with our deepest Dreams? How do you imagine a Future in a world that doesn’t expect you to even have one?

The event will last approximately 30 minutes, and features the performance of sections-in-progress from the new show, followed by the lobby launch of our Postcards From The Future and The Futurist Pledge!

Audience members will be the very FIRST to see and experience our Postcards From The Future and The Futurist Pledge … Audience members will receive Postcards and a Pledge to take home …for FREE!

A FREE, online, on-demand, Closed-Captioned video of this event will be available by request for those who cannot attend in-person events safely, or who cannot be vaccinated, because of disability, illness, immune suppression or other circumstances. Please see below for details.**
