SEAN DORSEY DANCE celebrates its 18th season with the world premiere of “The Lost Art of Dreaming” – presented November 18-20 (four performances only) at Z Space (450 Florida Street, San Francisco) – directed and choreographed by acclaimed transgender artist and activist, Sean Dorsey. “The Lost Art of Dreaming” is an all-new dance-theater work that invites audiences to reconnect with longing, embrace expansive imagination, connect with joy and pleasure, and move toward loving futures. This 65-minute production is a fusion of full-throttle contemporary dance, intimate storytelling, and exquisite queer partnering – all performed with Sean Dorsey Dance’s signature technical precision and deep humanity. “The Lost Art of Dreaming” is performed by a powerhouse ensemble of trans, queer and gender-non-conforming dancers and singers – with a rich, layered soundscore featuring original and commissioned music. “The Lost Art of Dreaming” was commissioned by American Dance Festival, Dance Place (Washington DC), 7 Stages (Atlanta GA), Velocity Dance Center (Seattle WA), Queer Cultural Center (San Francisco CA), and Yerba Buena Gardens Festival; and developed through residencies with the National Choreography Center in Akron (Akron OH).
