Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre will host Green Afternoon VI
, a Garden Dance Performance and Cocktail Reception, on Saturday, August 18 from 5 to 7 p.m. The annual interactive garden installation and performance will take place at the home of architects Marcia Previti and Peter Gumpel in East Hampton.
The evening will begin with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and several outdoor sitting rooms featuring performances installations, with dancers in treehouses, on outdoor sculptures, in swimming pools, in the woods, and more.
After the moving installations, there will be a seated performance of Selwyn's developing work, Crossroads
with dancers Torrey McAnena, Jarred Bosch, Manon Halley, Adam Dickerson, Alex Cottone, Sarah Starkweather, and Maggie Westerfield.
The new work by Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre explores the tumultuous process of self discovery and dive into unchartered waters. Selwyn collaborates with scenic and costume designer Anna-Alisa Belous to create a surreal landscape highlighting the moments at a crossroads, of a path divided, and how these moments steer the course of life.
Specializing in original dance that is meant to question and challenge social norms, the Theatre expresses the core themes in thought provoking dance.
