Don’t miss the world premiere of The Lost Art of Dreaming!

Tickets are limited: get your tickets now! We are offering 4-performances-only, with limited seating for COVID safety.

The Lost Art Of Dreaming invites us to reconnect with longing, embrace expansive imagination, connect with joy and pleasure, and propel ourselves toward loving Futures. 

This powerful new work features full-throttle dance, intimate storytelling, intricate costuming, and exquisite queer 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 original and commissioned music.

The event features the world premiere of the work, followed by the lobby experience of our Postcards From The Future and The Futurist Pledge!


  • Sean Dorsey Dance and Fresh Meat Productions resist and oppose the current rush to “re-open” without regard for the well-being and safety of our communities’ most marginalized, under-resourced and/or vulnerable.
  • If you cannot attend in-person events safely and/or cannot be vaccinated because of disability, illness or immune suppression – we still want this work to be accessible to you!
  • We will make an online, on-demand, Closed-Captioned video version of our Home Season available for FREE a few weeks after our in-person Home Season ($0+ sliding scale donation).
