SKETCH 9 : PERSPECTIVE
July 17-20, 2019

ODC Theater, San Francisco

SKETCH 9 : PERSPECTIVE marks 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.

SKETCH 9 : PERSPECTIVE is co-presented by ODC and supported in part by NEA Arts Work and Zaccho Studio’s Residency Program. Imagery is supported by The Kenneth Rainin Foundation, San Francisco Grants for the Arts, The Zellerbach Family Foundation, and the Fleishhacker Foundation.
