  • Amy Seiwert’s Imagery and ODC Co-present SKETCH 10 : WRECKED

    Join us for the 10th anniversary of the SKETCH series with new works by Amy Seiwert, Val Caniparoli, KT Nelson, Ben Needham-Wood, Dana Genshaft, and Mariana Oliveira.

    What will happen when these choreographers pair up and ‘wreck’ each other’s creations?

    Wrecking is an act of deconstruction and reconstruction revealing new potential in the choreographic process. This method was originally developed by modern dance choreographer, Susan Rethorst, as a way to get real feedback about her work. SKETCH 10 will be the first time that wrecking is used in a contemporary ballet setting.

In cheeky defiance of Doris Humphrey’s warning “All dances are too long,” EPOCH unfolds over 12 hours, in a gratuitous surplus of movement, interrupted by moments of nothingness, to challenge the valuing of acquisition and excess.
