The Lost Art of Dreaming
Award-winning choreographer Sean Dorsey is teaming up with composer Anomie Belle for his next show “The Lost Art of Dreaming.”
The Lost Art of Dreaming will investigate what happens when trans communities are invited to disrupt long-entrenched fatalistic American constructs that deny transgender communities the space to dream. Anomie’s music will carve out poignant, complex emotional journeys as Sean invites communities to think expansively, fantastically, and optimistically to imagine transgender and queer Futures. This new 70-90 minute work will be designed to be a highly-tourable production performed in a proscenium or black box venue. The work will feature full-throttle contemporary dance, highly-physical theater, intimate storytelling, humor, ethereal and layered musical compositions, and exquisite queer partnering. Performed by a 5-member all-queer ensemble, the show will premiere at Z Space in San Francisco in April 2021, followed by an extensive tour. Sean’s last 3 works all toured 20 or more cities; 8 have already confirmed presenting this work.
