It’s a Game

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre celebrates its thirteenth annual performance season with the world premiere of It’s a Game, an evening-length dance theatre work that brings a chess game to life through character, movement, line, pattern, relationship and human drama. Inspired by the work of Alexander McQueen and the magic of Harry Potter, the piece creates a moving fantasy of power dynamics, competition and strategy. It’s a Game sparks a rich palette of emotions and meaning via Selwyn’s vibrant movement language of extended limbs, physical risk, athleticism, gesture, energy, release, touch and balance.
Amanda Selwyn‘s presentation of It’s a Game at New York Live Arts is made possible through New York Live Arts’ Theater Access Program. The Theater Access program is a comprehensive subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations.
