IMAGERY that beckons.
In 2016 Imagery launched SKETCH 6 | Use Your Words, labeled by San Francisco Chronicle as “one of its best showings ever.” We pushed the boundaries of what ballet is and can be by intertwining text and ballet. I stepped outside of my own comfort zone and created a dance theater work to a poem by fantasy writer Neil Gaiman. And we continued our mission of breaking the glass ceiling for female choreographers in ballet by offering Nicole Haskins, who is at the dawn of her choreographic career, the opportunity to choreograph for SKETCH alongside Val Caniparoli and myself.
For 2017 we are thrilled to announce that Imagery is being commissioned by two of the most prominent dance theaters in the country, the Joyce Theater in New York City and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. I will be undertaking my biggest challenge yet: creating my first ever evening length ballet. The 70 minute work, set to Franz Schubert’s Winterreise, allows me to craft an experience that goes deeper and will take you, the audience, on a unique journey. The work premieres in July 2017 at the Cowell Theater at Fort Mason and opens the Joyce Theater Ballet Festival the following week. In February I’ll be able to share more with you about the exciting project with YBCA.
Imagery is evolving, innovating, and growing because of your belief in us and the support you provide. The reality of being a nonprofit is that we can’t do it without you. Thank you for being there with us. Please help us end 2016 on a high note and launch us into 2017, where we will bring you not one but two Imagery seasons in the Bay Area and a return to the prestigious Joyce Theater.
