World Premiere of Hindsight
Baruch Performing Arts Center and Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre present the World Premiere of Hindsight, in celebration of the company’s 20th Anniversary, from March 5-7, 2020 at 7:30pm at Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue (25th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues), NYC.
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre celebrates 20 years with a World Premiere evening-length dance theatre work, Hindsight. Focusing on reflection and memory, the piece references motifs and structures from two decades of richly layered repertory with a fresh eye by the choreographer known for her “Distinctive, off-kilter elegance” (The New Yorker). Hindsight explores the growth possible by looking back at history, with new choreography added to the repertory selections. The work will feature 12 company dancers as well as long-time collaborators Anna-Alisa Belous (costumes/scenery), Dan Ozminkowski (lighting), Joel Wilhelmi (sound), and John Narun (projection). There will also be an interactive lobby installation on Saturday, March 7.
Choreography: Amanda Selwyn and dancers
Dancers: Michael Bishop, Nolan Elsbecker, Alisa Gregory, Manon Hallay, Miaski Hayama, Isaac Kerr, Minseon Kim Jeun, Torrey McAnena, Ashley McQueen, Sho Miya, Lauren Russo, Evita Zacharioglou
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates original and dynamic dance theatre that 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.
