Amanda
Selwyn Dance Theatre will perform an excerpt of their latest
evening-length work, Crossroads, which premiered in June
2019. Crossroads explores forging into unchartered
waters and that tumultuous process of self-discovery. Inspired by the
work of Magritte and Escher, Selwyn collaborated 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. 

 

Choreography:
Amanda Selwyn and dancers 

Costume
and Scenic Design: Anna-Alisa Belous 

Sound
Design: Joel Wilhelmi

Dancers: Michael
Bishop, Nolan Elsbecker, Alisa Gregory, Manon Hallay, Miaski Hayama,
Min Kim, Sho Miya, Lauren Russo, Evita Zacharioglou

 

"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."

Amanda
Selwyn Dance Theatre
 creates
original and dynamic dance theatre that raises questions 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, the company engages audiences from start to finish
and beckons a response of thought, feeling, and
soul. www.amandaselwyndance.org
