For SKETCH 6 | Use Your Words Amy Seiwert and master choreographer and San Francisco legend Val Caniparoli and emerging choreographer Nicole Haskins challenged themselves in creating new world premieres around the theme “ballet based on text”.  The evening included the revival of Adam Houglands Cigarettes which premiered at Imagery’s first SKETCH on July 22, 2011 at SKETCH: New Works, Z Space, San Francisco, CA.

“ Seiwert's Instructions is too clever to disappear after a single weekend." -Allan Ulrich, Imagery's dance sketches deserve to be seen again, SF Gate, July 9, 2016

"Once again, we have the Bay Area phenomenon of a small local company achieving goals that elude the big guys." - Artssf.com

"Amy has found a way to build a dance company with a rotating body of talent, attuned to her creativity and each in their own way a muse. Her adventurous history of creativity bridges traditional and contemporary classicism, a willingness to partner with the unpredictable and be inclusive to both creative chaos and rigorous parameters. She is a fine human being doing the impossible by running a dance company and forging her own artistic path." -KT Nelson

“I am in awe of Amy Seiwert and what she has accomplished with Amy Seiwert’s, Imagery. She has put together a company worthy of national and international attention in a very short time. I feel very fortunate to have a second opportunity to work with this amazing group of dancers, designers, staff and, of course, Amy herself after such a positive experience I had with the creation of Tryptich. Amy Seiwert’s Imagery deserves as much support as possible to keep them alive and kicking for many years to come.” - Val Caniparoli
