Amy Seiwert's Imagery at the Joyce with Choreographer talk-back: 7/28

from 40.00

On Friday July 28th, you are invited to a very special evening of dance and discussion, featuring a performance by choreographer Amy Seiwert's ground-breaking contemporary ballet company, Imagery, at the Joyce Theater.

First, we will meet at 6:15pm for a delicious two-course meal at Chuck & Blade (184 8th Ave btw. 19th & 20th) before heading to the Joyce Theater (175 8th Ave at 19th St.) for the 8pm performance. After the show, we will have the chance to learn all about the choreographic process during our private champagne reception with the choreographer!

Known for exploding preconceptions of what ballet is and can be, Seiwert believes dance is an expressive and vital voice relevant to our times. The piece we are seeing investigates the power of modern myth and the Hero's Journey and follows the internal and physical journeys of a wanderer feeling lost from himself and the world. You can learn more about the company & choreographer, and see clips of the piece here:
