“The vocabulary of
ballet never changes,
it is only the usage that
becomes outmoded."

SKETCH 9| Perspective

Save the date for the 9th iteration of Imagery's celebrated SKETCH Series, an annual creative laboratory which provides a safe place for risk-taking in ballet-based choreography. During an intensive 5-week rehearsal period three choreographers will each create a new ballet for the eight dancers of Amy Seiwert’s Imagery.  Original works by Amy Seiwert, Artistic Fellow Ben Needham-Wood, and Chicago based choreographer Stephanie Martinez explore new potentials on utilizing projection as a theatrical lighting source, stepping out of the traditional mindset of how to light a ballet.

Each choreographer will work with their own video artists and we are honored to be collaborating with Olivia Ting, Chris Correa, and Ben Estabrook.

Tickets $35-$55 (pre-sale) | $25 for Students, Seniors, and People with Disabilities.

SKETCH 9 features dancers Isaac Bates-Vinueza, Alysia Chang, Joseph A. Hernandez, Peter Kurta, Kelsey McFalls, Austin Meiteen, Constanza Murphy, and Shania Rasmussen.
