Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre was awarded a 2023-24 CUNY Dance Initiative Residency
at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center for our 24th Performance Season and World Premiere of Habit Formed
on March 1-2, 2024. Habit Formed
weaves fluid, sensuous movements with sharp, distinctive gestures. The piece traverses a spectrum of emotions associated with habits, from euphoria to restlessness to liberation. The ultimate journey of the work is a story of discernment, unpacking how we can be empowered by intentional habits and not impaired by them. In our 23rd Season, we were in Residency at Hofstra University
and presented a preview of Habit Formed
as part of their Summer Residency Series. For our 22nd Performance Season, we premiered Threads
at New York Live Arts. Threads
explored what holds us together in isolation and the practice of letting go. For our 21st Season, we presented a Virtual Performance and Gala and 3 Outdoor Performances in NYC, High Falls, and East Hampton. Our 20th Anniversary Performance Season was presented by the CUNY Dance Initiative
at Baruch Performing Arts Center. With a focus on reflection and memory, Hindsight
referenced signature structures from two decades of richly layered repertory.
Our 19th Season Crossroads
premiered at New York Live Arts Inspired Magritte and Escher, Crossroads
animated a surrealistic landscape that highlighted moments at crossroads, choosing one path or another, and how these moments steer the course of our lives.
