Crossroads is a new work in development by Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre scheduled to premiere in June 2019 at New York Live Arts. The piece explores forging into uncharted waters and that tumultuous process of self-discovery. Inspired by the work of Margritte and Escher, Selwyn will collaborate with scenic & costume designer, Anna-Alisa Belous to shape a surrealistic landscape that highlights these lingering moments at the crossroads, choosing one path or another, and how these moments steer the course of our lives. Choreography: Amanda Selwyn and dancers Dancers: Alessandro Cottone, Manon Hallay, Misaki Hayama, Torrey McAnena, Yoshi Pineda, Fabricio Seraphin, Sarah Starkweather  Costume and Scenic Design: Anna-Alisa Belous Sound Design: Joel Wilhelmi 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 Founded in 2000, Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre has presented over 65 productions at NYC venues including Tribeca Performing Arts Center, New York Live Arts, Dance Theatre Workshop, Mark Morris Dance Group, Dance New Amsterdam, Danspace Project, Ailey Citigroup Theater, The Kumble Theater, and John Jay College. We have been presented twice at Jacob's Pillow, Tribeca Performance Arts Center, Westfest, DUMBO Dance Festival, Dixon Place, Dance Teacher Summit, COOL NY, Movement Research, and Pushing Progress Series. We have toured to festivals, presented open rehearsals, interactive performance events and workshops, and offer arts-in-education programming through Notes in Motion Outreach Dance Theatre to children in the NYC public schools. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=348769 Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
