Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre “Renewal”
Tribeca Performing Arts Center, 199 Chambers St., NYC
March 13-15, 2015
The Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre is performing the world premiere of “Renewal” from March 13-15, 2015 at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center. “Renewal” is an evening-length work that unpacks the state of being made new, fresh, or strong again – dramatizing how we reinvent ourselves again and again over time. It will be composed of a series of shorts that shift the physical and visceral present movement, restarting, reclaiming, and revitalizing our experience of it. Each short will highlight signature structures and elements in Selwyn’s style including gesture, partnering, virtuosic artistry juxtaposed with pedestrian movement, humor, character, and theatricality. With Selwyn’s fresh and vibrant movement language of extended limbs, physical risk, athleticism, energy, release, touch, and balance, she will activate emotional expression and offer many in-roads for audiences to make meaning for themselves. The Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates original and dynamic dance that raises questions, challenges social norms and values, and magnifies humanity through dance.
Following the 7:30pm performance on Saturday, March 14, and as part of the company’s 15th Anniversary Performance Season at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, the Crystal White Gala will take place at the New York Law School from 9pm – 11:30pm.
