Amy Seiwert's Imagery presents SKETCH 7: Wandering

SEE EVENT DETAILS
July 21 and July 22, 8 pm and July 23, 7 pm

Amy Seiwert's Imagery, a contemporary ballet company, presents the seventh annual SKETCH series, July 21-23, Cowell Theater, Fort Mason Center. In this year's SKETCH performance, Artistic Director Amy Seiwert creates her first evening length contemporary ballet. The new work, Wandering, is supported by one of two Creative Residencies offered through the Joyce Theater Foundation, New York's premier presenter of dance. This marks the first National Residency offered by the Joyce to a company outside of NYC.

After Wandering premieres in San Francisco, Imagery travels to New York, July 27-29, where the work closes the Joyce's 2017 Ballet Festival. Following the Joyce engagement, Amy Seiwert's Imagery also performs at Jacob's Pillow, August 2, Becket, Massachusetts.

Wandering is set to Winterreise (Winter Journey) a piano and voice cycle by Franz Schubert set to 24 poems by Wilhelm Muller. The ballet is choreographed specifically for Amy Seiwert's Imagery dancers with choreographic consultation by San Francisco legend Val Caniparoli (San Francisco Ballet). Wandering is a narrative-based work, unlike Seiwert's past works which often lean towards the abstract.

SKETCH 7| Wandering also includes strong visual components by the design team of Brian Jones (visual design) and Susan Roemer (costumes), who create a surreal environment that engages the viewer in unexpected ways. For this piece, Seiwert looks at the stage in a painterly way to support the narrative potential in the work, and subverts typical ballet scenic imagery.
