"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
'Five Minutes is an evening-length dance theatre work that takes the audience through a series of contrasting emotional and physical paradigms in five-minute intervals. The piece asks: what does it mean to wait for five minutes? To fill five minutes? How is time measured differently by our experiences? The movement speaks to these questions in extended limbs, physical risk, desire, energy, release, touch, and balance. The choreography seeks out spontaneous discoveries, raw and uninterrupted, to let movement flow from momentum and physical sensation. In Five Minutes, our experience of time is malleable and the world on-stage renews itself into a different place and time every five minutes.
Five Minutes premiered at Dance Theater Workshop in June 2011.
