“luscious, intricate and deeply human dance” (Bay Times)

“expressive dancers, spectacular couture costumes and an uninhibited, enthusiastic embrace of joy” (KQED/PBS)

Sean Dorsey Dance's 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 queer, trans 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.

Sean Dorsey is a Doris Duke Artist, an inaugural Dance/USA Fellow, has toured his work to more than 30 cities across the US and internationally, and is widely  recognized as the US’ first acclaimed transgender modern dance choreographer.
