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 on this planet and in the Future.

And above all: DREAMING IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT.

Sean Dorsey Dance’s multi-year project THE LOST ART OF DREAMING investigates and imagines expansive Futures for our communities. 

SAVE THE DATE for the world premiere of this new full-evening dance-theater production: November 17-20, 2022 at Z Space (San Francisco) … followed by a national tour (2022-2024)! We’ll also be offering free interactive online creative tools, a series of dance films, DREAM LABS, and so much more!

THE LOST ART OF DREAMING is an invitation to reclaim, remember, connect, conjure, co-create and manifest OUR BIRTHRIGHT:

Joy, Pleasure, Well-Being, Freedom, Love, Connection, Liberation

Some of the humans collaborating to create all this magic are: dancer-collaborators: Sean Dorsey, Héctor Jaime and Nol Simonse. Original music composed by: Anomie Belle, LD Brown, Frida Ibarra, Alex Kelly, and Ben Kessler. Costume design by: Tiffany Amundson. Technical Director: Emily Paulson. Lighting Designer: Clyde Sheets.

And starting in Spring & Summer 2022, you are invited to be part of the constellation of activities we’ll launch as part of The Lost Art of Dreaming

All of these activities will be launched online: make sure you join our email list to get news and announcements.
