Amanda Selwyn will be presenting an excerpt of her newest work It's a Game. It’s a Game will bring a chess game to life through character, movement, line, pattern, relationship, and human drama. Inspired by the work of Alexander McQueen and the magic of Harry Potter, the piece will create a moving fantasy of power dynamics, competition, and strategy. With Selwyn’s fresh and vibrant movement language of extended limbs, physical risk, athleticism, gesture, energy, release, touch, and balance, she will activate emotional expression and offer many in-roads for audiences to make meaning for themselves.
Dancers: Sarah Buscaino, Jenny Gillan, Victor Larue, Emily Pacilio, Torrey McAnena, Randall Smith
About the Company: Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre
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
