Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre will be presented at Dixon Place on Tuesday, April 17th in a split bill. We will be previewing our newest work, Detour, which will premiere in full at New York Live Arts in June. Detour will be an evening-length dance theatre work that shifts perspective and perception. The choreography will challenge the ways in which the mind acts to narrow our scope creating unnecessary pain and false judgement. A moment on stage that looks one way will transform therby 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.
