INVOCATION is the first in a series of Video Postcards created by Sean Dorsey Dance
as part of our multi-year project The Lost Art Of Dreaming.
The Lost Art of DREAMING is
a danced invocation
a loving invitation to
reclaim, remember, re-connect, conjure, co-create and manifest OUR BIRTHRIGHT:
The Lost Art of DREAMING is a spell,
and as we all know SPELLS can be spoken,
signed or sung.
Here are some of the SPELLS will create as we pursue The Lost Art of DREAMING:
Sometimes we’ll dance together (on Zoom).
Sometimes we’ll dance for you.
Sometimes we’ll invite other artists to create wonderful things and share them.
Sometimes we’ll invite YOU to create things and share them.
Sometimes we’ll make dance films and share them.
Sometimes we will write things and share them.
We’ll make VIDEO POSTCARDS.
We’ll make a DICTIONARY OF JOY AND PLEASURE.
We’ll work with/in communities all over in DREAM LABS (creative spaces where folks are invited to dance, write, sing, craft and creatively express what it is they most want/dream of for the Future).
We’ll make a SHOW (we hope to premiere it in December 2021).
We’ll go on TOUR (2022-2024) – and we’ll travel with our show, with DREAM LABS and with pockets full of spells, rituals, workshops, food and other nourishing goodies to share in community.
We’ll create private and shared RITUALS,
We’ll dance and sweat and tell stories to each other and ourselves,
We’ll laugh and most likely we will cry too,
We will call in and invoke healing, joy, freedom, pleasure & liberation.
