Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre announces Green Afternoon IX: An Excerpt from Threads
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre announces Green Afternoon IX, an excerpt from Threads, on August 6, 2022 at 5 p.m. at the home of architects Marcia Previti and Peter Gumpel, 230 Old Stone Highway, East Hampton, NY. This outdoor performance will be held in a unique garden setting, featuring movement installations in the various outdoor “rooms” throughout the property and a seated performance on the great lawn. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
“Threads explores what holds us together in isolation and the practice of letting go,” said Amanda Selwyn, Artistic Director. “This pandemic has brought into focus where priorities are, the value of our human connections, and the very fleeting nature of it all. We are just a moment away from change. The threads can be fixed, torn, mended, or woven. The music and the movement in this innovative evening-length work will embody these ties that hold us together and their fragility to pull us apart…Threads is a tribute to the grit and resilience of this moment — a willingness to do the work and to inquire, to sit in uncertainty and ponder what is on the other side. It starts as a thread of an idea and, from that thread, a fabric of meaning emerges. One thread at a time. By listening, pulling, teasing, tearing at each piece…”
The performance will feature Scenic and Costume design by Anna-Alisa Belous, Lighting Design by Dan Ozminkowski, and Sound Design by Joel Wilhelmi.
Dancers to perform are Torrey Harada, Manon Hallay, Misaki Hayama, David Hochberg, Isaac Kerr, Minseon Kim, Ashley McQueen, Michael Miles, Oscar Antonio Rodriguez, Lauren Russo, John Trunfio, and Evita Zacharioglou.
