Amy Seiwert’s Imagery and ODC Theater Co-Present SKETCH 11: Interrupted
Friday-Saturday, August 27-28, 8:00 PM PT
Sunday, August 29, 7:00 PM PT *ASL & Audio Description
Broadcast: October 22, 7:30 PM PT
In keeping with the titular theme, Artistic Director Amy Seiwert and Artistic Fellow Ben Needham-Wood will “interrupt” each other by exchanging active feedback during the creation process of their new ballets. The original concept for 2020’s SKETCH 10: Wrecked was inspired by the Wrecking process developed by choreographer Susan Rethorst. That concept, which would have included six choreographers, had to be scrapped and reconsidered due to COVID. SKETCH 11: Interrupted pays homage to the worldwide disruption of the pandemic and reconceives Imagery’s original plan on a smaller scale. Seiwert and Needham-Wood will use specific tools of deconstruction and reconstruction to expose the inner workings of each piece and lay bare each choreographer’s conscious and unconscious habits. Choreography can often happen in isolated ways, and this type of structured feedback disrupts that isolation to open up avenues of imagination and possibility.
