Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre announces its 2013 Season, the Thirteenth Annual Performance Season from Thursday - Saturday, June 27-29, 2013 at 7:30pm at New York Live Arts, 219 W. 19th Street, NYC. The season will feature the World Premiere of It's a Game. Tickets are 0 (0 for Live Arts members, students, and seniors) and are available at www.newyorklivearts.org or by phone at (212) 924-0077.


It's a Game will be an evening-length dance theatre work that 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. 


"Amanda Selwyn is a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion - she had me laughing, crying, cringing and gasping all in the short 55-minute production." - Inside New York


"Amanda Selwyn's work is masterly and emotionally expressive, she is truly gifted in the art of dance making." - NYC Dance Stuff


Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates 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 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, we engage audiences from start to finish and beckon a response of thought, feeling, and soul. www.amandaselwyndance.org
