Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre Announces Green Afternoon X
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre will present Green Afternoon X – a site specific modern dance performance experience – on Saturday, July 8, 2023 at 5 p.m. at the home of Marcia Previti and Peter Gumpel, 230 Old Stone Highway, East Hampton, NY. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit amandaselwyndance.org/green-afternoon-x.
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre’s tenth engagement of Green Afternoon in The Hamptons will be a movable outdoor performance in a unique garden setting. The performance includes movement installations in the various outdoor “rooms” throughout the property followed by a seated performance preview on the great lawn of the developing work: Habit Formed. Habit Formed is an evening-length that explores how habits function in our lives. These habits can manifest strength, ease, and freedom and also create limits, boundaries, and affliction. The ultimate journey of the work will tell a story of discernment, unpacking how we can be empowered by our habits and not impaired by them.
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates dynamic dance theatre that activates emotional expression in a rich and abstract collage. Through an interplay between athletic and articulate motion, we present theatrical and immediate works that engage audiences from start to finish and beckon a response of thought, feeling, and soul.
