Amanda Selwyn Dance Theater's a GREEN AFTERNOON VI a Tremendous Success

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre presented a sold-out showing of Green Afternoon VI, the company's annual interactive garden installation and performance at the home of architects Marcia Previti and Peter Gumpel in East Hampton, NY on Saturday, August 18, 2018.
 
"Green Afternoon VI was a tremendous success," said Amanda Selwyn, artistic director of Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre. "Despite a bit of rain, the company was able to share a preview of my newest choreographic work Crossroads, which will have its World Premiere in June 2019. We were so pleased to share our artistry in such an amazing setting."
 
The evening began at 5pm with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and several outdoor sitting rooms featuring performance installations, with performers dancing in tree houses, on outdoor sculptures, in and around the swimming pool, in the woods, and more. After the moving installations, at 5:50 p.m., the audience moved to the lawn for a seated performance of Selwyn's developing work Crossroads.
 
A new work in development by Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre, Crossroads is scheduled to premiere in June 2019. The piece explores forging into unchartered waters and that tumultuous process of self-discovery. Inspired by the work of Margritte and Escher, Selwyn will collaborate with scenic & costume designer, Anna-Alisa Belous to shape a surrealistic landscape that highlights these lingering moments at the crossroads, choosing one path or  another, and how these moments steer the course of our lives.
 
"Amanda Selwyn is a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion - she had me laughing, crying, cringing and gasping all in the short 55-minute production." 
- Inside New York
 
"Amanda Selwyn's work is masterly and emotionally expressive, she is truly gifted in the art of dance making." - NYC Dance Stuff
 
Dancers: Torrey McAnena, Jarred Bosch, Manon Halley, Adam Dickerson, Alex Cottone, Sarah Starkweather, and Maggie Westerfield. Costume and Scenic Design: Anna-Alisa Belous. Sound Design: Joel Wilhelmi.

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates original and dynamic dance theatre that raises questions, challenges social norms and values, and magnifies humanity through dance. Productions pivot around core themes and through an interplay between athletic and pedestrian motion, activate emotional expression, character, and narrative in a rich and abstract collage. Presenting dance in an immediate, mature, and inclusive way, we engage audiences from start to finish and beckon a response of thought, feeling, and soul. www.amandaselwyndance.org
 
Founded in 2000, Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre has presented over 65 productions at NYC venues including Tribeca Performing Arts Center, New York Live Arts, Dance Theatre Workshop, Dance New Amsterdam, Danspace Project, Ailey Citigroup Theater, The Kumble Theater, John Jay College, and Mark Morris Dance Center. We have been presented twice at Jacob's Pillow, Westfest, DUMBO Dance Festival, Dixon Place, Dance Teacher Summit, COOL NY, Movement Research, and Pushing Progress Series. We have toured to festivals, presented open rehearsals, interactive performance events and workshops, and offer arts-in-education programming through Notes in Motion Outreach Dance Theatre to children in the NYC public schools.
