Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, a contemporary ballet company based in San Francisco, will show excerpts of Wandering, Seiwert’ first evening-length contemporary ballet set to “Winterreise,” a piano and voice cycle by Franz Schubert to 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller. The dramatic monologue reflects the story of a wanderer who feels lost from himself and lost from the world. Wandering was created during a residency provided by The Joyce Theater Foundation, New York City, with major support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Amy Seiwert enjoyed a nineteen-year performing career dancing with the Smuin, LA Chamber, and Sacramento Ballets. As a dancer with Smuin Ballet she became involved with the “Protégé Program” where her choreography was mentored by the late Michael Smuin, and became Choreographer in Residence there upon her retirement from dancing in 2008.
