Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre announces its 2012 Season, the Twelfth Annual Performance Season from June 21-23, 2012 at New York Live Arts, 219 W. 19th Street, NYC. The season will feature the World Premiere of Detour. Tickets are $30 at the door/$24 in advance ($27 at the door/$22 in advance for Live Arts members, students, and seniors) and will be available at www.newyorklivearts.org or by phone at (212) 924-0077.

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre will also present a preview of Detour as part of a split billon Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie Street (btw Rivington & Delancey), www.dixonplace.org.

Detour, an evening-length dance theatre work, shifts perspective and perception. The choreography challenges the ways in which the mind acts to narrow our scope - creating unnecessary pain and false judgment. A moment on stage that looks one way will transform, thereby challenging the way we originally experienced that image or moment. By veering off course and getting out of our own way, we are able to experience the present more fully. Through physical dynamics, luscious movement, and theatrical elements, Detour will continually shift the experience of perception. The piece will subvert expectations; just as momentum builds onstage, the energy will shrink. Likewise, just as something appears small, it will grow to feel massive, vast, and timeless. Turning movement inside out, Detour will play with timing and musicality, stillness and repetition, spatial design and direction. It is in these moments of detour, when the possibilities for change reveal themselves.

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre productions engage audiences in original and dynamic dance theatre that raises questions, challenges social norms and values, and magnifies humanity through dance. Productions pivot around core themes and through interplay between athletic and pedestrian motion, activate emotional expression, character, and narrative in a rich and abstract collage. Amanda Selwyn's collaborative choreographic process nurtures our own network of artists while actively engaging the community at large.

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre's Twelfth Annual Performance Season is funded by The Harkness Foundation for Dance and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Cultural Development Fund.

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre's presentation of Detour at New York Live Arts is made possible through the Theater Access Program. The Theater Access Program is a subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations interested in self-producing their work at New York Live Arts.
