Sean Dorsey Dance’s new work THE LOST ART OF DREAMING is an invitation to embrace expansive imagination, reconnect with longing, connect with joy and pleasure, and propel ourselves toward loving Futures.
This 70-minute work is a fusion of full-throttle dance, live storytelling, intricate costuming and exquisite partnering … all performed with Sean Dorsey Dance’s signature technical precision, guts and deep humanity.
THE LOST ART OF DREAMING is performed by a powerhouse ensemble of five trans, queer and gender-non-conforming dancers (Sean Dorsey, Brandon Graham, Héctor Jaime, David Le, Nol Simonse) – with a rich, layered soundscore featuring commissioned and original music. Learn more about Artistic Director Sean Dorsey.
This work tours with 5 dancers, Technical Director and Wardrobe Supervisor.
