For the 24th Anniversary Performance Season, Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre will be premiering an evening-length work entitled Habit Formed.
Habit Formed explores how habits are created and broken in our lives. These habits can manifest strength, ease, and freedom and also create limits, boundaries, and affliction. Mounting physical structures, motif, and pattern will embody the ways in which we, as humans, are habit forming creatures. The structures will be unpacked over the course of the evening through a playful, athletic, and sensuous movement vocabulary. 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.
Habit Formed will include Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre’s company of 10 dancers, costume design by Anna-Alisa Belous, scenic design by Anna-Alisa Belous and Rob Dutiel, Lighting Design by Dan Ozminkowski, and Sound Design by Joel Wilhelmi.Selwyn is “a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion…” raves Inside NY.
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre’s residency at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center is part of the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI), which receives major support from The Mertz Gilmore Foundation and Howard Gilman Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Jerome Robbins Foundation, SHS Foundation, Harkness Foundation for Dance, the National Endowment for the Arts, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
