WELCOME

Welcome to THE LOST ART OF DREAMING!

We are SO glad you’re here. You are precious and irreplaceable and YOU have an important place in this dream.

So: what is THE LOST ART OF DREAMING?

THE LOST ART OF DREAMING is

a spell
a danced invocation
a loving invitation to
reclaim, remember, connect, conjure, co-create and manifest OUR BIRTHRIGHT:

JOY
PLEASURE
LOVE
DREAMING
LIBERATION

This is an incantation.

Composite image featuring 4 photographs of 4 Sean Dorsey Dance dancers. Each dancer is pictured from the shoulders up, and their eyes are closed; their mouths are shaped in a gentle almost-smile. From left: Will Woodward is a Black masculine person with short black hair;; he is not wearing a shirt. Nol Simonse is a white masculine person with a shaved head and blonde-brown beard stubble; he wears a black tshirt. Raul Torres-Bonilla is a Puerto Rican masculine person with short brown hair – the top is bleached blonde; he wears a grey v-neck shirt and a silver necklace. Sean Dorsey is a white trans masculine person with short dark brown hair; he wears a dark grey v-neck tshirt.

The LOST ART OF DREAMING is a spell,

and as we all know SPELLS can be spoken,

danced,

drawn,

written,

dreamed,

chanted,

signed or sung.

Here are some of the SPELLS will create as we pursue The Lost Art of DREAMING:

Sometimes we’ll dance together.

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 a TIME CAPSULE.

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 San Francisco 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.

Together,
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.
