Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre Presents GREEN AFTERNOON II, 7/13
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre announces a performance and installation at the home of architects Marcia Previti and Peter Gumpel in East Hampton, NY on Saturday, July 13, 2013. The evening begins at 4:30 p.m. with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and several outdoor sitting rooms featuring performance installations.
A more formal performance will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed by a reception. Green Afternoon takes place at 230 Old Stone Hwy, East Hampton, NY 11937. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at http://greenafternoon2.eventbrite.com/.
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
