A ballett work by Amy Seiwert and her company m'ij-re (that's how you pronounce the word imagery)
Coreography: Amy Seiwert
Interactive System Design: Frieder Weiss
Review of “White Noise” by KQED's Quest
San Francisco International Arts Festival website
im'ij-re is a contemporary ballet company in San Francisco directed by Amy Seiwert. Holding the belief that ballet has an expressive and vital voice relevant for our current time, respect is held for swans and sylphs, but they are not where the company’s interests lie. Having no desire to regurgitate art, im’ij-re’s artists share the belief that through collaboration and experimentation with artists of other discplines, vibrant and courageous ideas can be expressed. Habitual reactions are discouraged.
This work was commisioned by and premiered at the San Francisco International Arts Festival End of May 2010.
