Amy Seiwert’s Imagery at The Joyce

The Joyce Theater

175 Eighth Avenue New York, NY 10011

Amy Seiwert returns to The Joyce with her contemporary ballet company, Imagery and her first evening-length ballet, which is set to Franz Schubert’s voice and piano cycle Winterreise, commissioned by The Joyce Theater. A dramatic monologue portraying a wanderer feeling lost from himself and the world, this ballet explores both internal and physical journeys. Although Seiwert employs classical ballet technique, the piece resonates with current times, investigating the power of modern myth and the Hero’s journey cycle. Imagery’s artists are ballet trained dancers who are critical thinkers, willing to leave their comfort zones and who delight in breaking preconceptions of ballet. —Joyce
