Celebrate the fifth SKETCH series with the amazing artists of Amy Seiwert’s Imagery!
Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, a contemporary ballet company in San Francisco, believes that ballet is an expressive and vital voice relevant to our times. Imagery’s artists share the belief that through collaboration & experimentation, vibrant and courageous ideas are expressed and habitual reactions are discouraged. Imagery’s mission is to expand the definition of ballet by exploding preconceptions of what ballet is and can be.
The SKETCH series was created to foster risk and innovation in ballet based choreography. In 2015, we mix it up. Seiwert will be collaborating with ODC Co-Artistic Director KT Nelson on a new work. The artists will be editing each other’s work and interrupting each other’s process, in hopes of discovering something entirely new. This type of collaboration is extremely rare in ballet. Also on the program, Seiwert’s premiere of Back To, set to the recordings of bluegrass artist Gillian Welch, and the West Coast premiere of Traveling Alone, created for Colorado Ballet in 2011.
SKETCH 5 | Stirred is co-presented by ODC and supported in part by Zaccho Studio’s Residency Program
