- West Edge Festival is moving — but can’t say where
By Sam Whiting - Thursday Jun 1, 2017
West Edge Opera, the sponsoring entity, lost its use of the historic 16th Street Station in West Oakland and has not finalized a replacement space yet.The festival opens Aug. 2, and free shuttles to the as-yet unknown location will be offered from the West Oakland BART Station.Founded as Berkeley Opera in 1979, and renamed West Edge in 2012, the Berkeley company presents a summer festival of three complete, fully staged operas in a space that was not built for fully staged operas.For the past two seasons it has used the 16th Street Station, a Beaux Arts landmark that was built in 1912 as the terminus for transcontinental passenger train travel.To stage an opera in the Main Hall, everything was brought in by West Edge, including electricity, a platform stage and seating for 500.In March, West Edge was informed by Bridge Housing that Oakland would no longer grant special permits for public events inside the station, and the scramble began.
- ‘Wandering’ puts Seiwert on the map
By Claudia Bauer - Sunday Jul 23, 2017
The sought-after freelance choreographer triumphed this spring with her first narrative work, in Opera Parallèle’s production of Philip Glass’ “Les Enfants Terribles,” and she was recently announced as the next artistic director of Sacramento Ballet.Seiwert loves to challenge her limits, and with “Wandering,” she set herself the monumental task of interpreting Franz Schubert’s 1827 “Winterreise” song cycle as contemporary ballet.Based on 24 poems by German lyric poet Wilhelm Müller, “Winterreise” lays bare one young man’s lost love and existential angst.Seiwert’s lyrical modernism follows the spirit of the music, rather than the letter of the lyrics, creating a series of sense impressions more than a character-driven narrative.Gabriel Gaffney Smith’s marvelous emotional presence makes the bittersweet “Spring Dreams” materialize anew in each moment.When not in the lead, the dancers forgo individuality and merge into a chorus of energy, leaning in and heaving outward in canons, pirouetting and partnering, and pausing in intertwined tableaux.Touch emerges as the driving force of “Wandering,” a tender counterpoint to lyrics about desperate aloneness.Imagery performs “Winterreise” in the Joyce Theater’s Ballet Festival Thursday through Saturday, July 27-29, and excerpts at the prestigious Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in August.
