In Sean Dorsey’s multi-year project, The Lost Art of Dreaming, he encourages trans and nonbinary people to claim their right to a life they love, in contrast to the hateful cultural messaging and escalating attacks and U.S. policies against LGBTQ+ communities. Dreaming invites community members to imagine expansive futures that are joyful and liberated. Experience Dorsey and members of Sean Dorsey Dance perform excerpts from The Lost Art of Dreaming in some of San Francisco’s most inspiring settings—Twin Peaks, Hillpoint Park, and the Cliff House above Ocean Beach , in this episode of KQED’s If Cities Could Dance series.
