About The Event

Trailblazing transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey (San Francisco) comes to Highways with the SoCal premiere of Sean Dorsey Dance's new work: 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 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 company is here as part of a 10+ city international tour, and is celebrating their 20th Anniversary Season.

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 an Emmy award-winning choreographer, a Doris Duke Artist, a Dance/USA Fellow, a United States Artist Fellow, and has toured his work to more than 35 cities across the US and internationally.
