Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre announces Preview of Threads
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre has announced a preview of Threads on Sunday, January 23, 2022 at 6:30pm and 8pm at Arts on Site, 12 St. Mark’s Place, NYC.
“Threads will explore 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…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. This is a story of heartbreak, forgiveness, loss, new beginnings, agency, and powerlessness…”
“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. Showing up in it…” Selwyn continued.
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates dynamic dance theatre that activates emotional expression in a rich and abstract collage. Through an interplay between athletic and pedestrian motion, they present theatrical and immediate works that engage audiences from start to finish and beckon a response of thought, feeling, and soul.
Founded in 2000, Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre has presented over 95 productions at NYC venues. They have toured to festivals, presented open rehearsals, interactive performance events and workshops, and offers arts education programming through Notes in Motion to students and families in the NYC public schools.
