Open Rehearsal | Fall 2022 November 15, 2022 | Gibney 280 Broadway, NYC
The artists of Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre gave an intimate look at the creative process of our developing work, Habit Formed. Habit Formed is Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre’s developing evening-length work that will be preview as our 23rd Season and premiere in full in 2024 at New York Live Arts as the company’s 24th Annual Performance Season. The piece will use repetition, motif, and variation to create a moving landscape that explores how habits are created and broken in our lives. These habits create both freedom and restriction. Repeated group sections with small changes and mounting physical structures (gates, walls, netting) 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. Habit Formed will include Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre’s company of 11 dancers, costume and scenic design by Anna-Alisa Belous, Lighting Design by Dan Ozminkowski, and Sound Design by Joel Wilhelmi.
