SKETCH 8 to feature live music by Christen Lien

Amy Seiwert will be collaborating with internationally acclaimed violist Christen Lien, for her new ballet “Elpis” for SKETCH 8 Origin Stories. Ms. Lien has reimaged the character of Elpis in her concept album of the same name and will be performing live with us for all performances.

Christen Lien’s provocative compositions, hypnotic performance style, and entrepreneurial business approach all reflect her passion for challenging the status quo. Through her music and storytelling she seeks to support her fans to process the complex and oftentimes dark emotions that oppress individual potential and hold back collective power. Her new concept album, ELPIS, continues a long-lost story of Greek mythology and explores the dark side of hope. Christen has performed for the Obama White House, Google, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, MIT, Forbes 30 Under 30, Berklee College of Music, de Young, Detroit Institute of Art, and the United States Institute of Peace.
