A preview performance of Selwyn’s newest work, Threads, which will premiere in full April 7-9, 2022 at New York Live Arts as our 22nd Annual Performance Season. This performance is supported by NYSCA Restart NY Rapid Live Performance Grants.
8 p.m. Performance will be followed by a reception.
Threads explores what holds us together in isolation and the practice of letting go. This pandemic has brought into focus where priorities are, the value of our human connections, and the very fleeting nature of it all. We are just a moment away from change. The threads can be fixed, torn, mended, or woven. The music and the movement in this innovative evening-length work will embody these ties that hold us together and their fragility to pull us apart. This is a story of heartbreak, forgiveness, loss, new beginnings, agency, and powerlessness. Threads build bridges, celebrate difference, and connect us. We are only as alone as the next knot — accidental or purposeful.
