SKETCH 4 | MUSIC MIRROR
July 24-27, 2014
ODC Theater

World premieres by Kevin Keller, Adam Hougland & Amy Seiwert

Music Mirror, is a commissioning project and creative residency presented by Amy Seiwert's Imagery. Choreographers Seiwert and Adam Hougland collaborated with composer Kevin Keller in the creation of new works, culminating in public performances at ODC Theater. SKETCH 4 | Music Mirror explored how these two very different ballet choreographers interpret the same piece of original music by Keller. The commissioned music was performed live.

"2014’s SKETCH installment tackled the conversation between movement and music. To that end, SKETCH 4 saw different choreographers (Adam Hougland and Amy Seiwert) creating premiere works for the same original music (composed by Kevin Keller). The result? Two glorious physical manifestations of musical concepts and ideas." - Heather Desaulniers

"Seiwert’s curiosity for experiencing her craft from different perspectives takes ballet to places it seldom travels." -Marie Tollon

SKETCH 4 : Collaboration stretches choreographers' talents - Allan Ulrich, SF Chronicle preview

"Put two gifted ballet choreographers together with the same score and the same dancers, and you will probably get different results. But Amy Seiwert's Sketch 4 went much further. It suggested that music may be the principal shaping influence in determining one's choreographic style. Which is quite a bit to learn in a little more than 90 minutes." - Allan Ulrich, SF Chronicle
