Mission Statement

Notes in Motion, led by Artistic Director Amanda Selwyn, is a dance theatre company that creates new performance works through a unique collaborative process. The process fully integrates music, visual art, costume, and other media into the choreographic invention. We aim to form innovative new performance works imparting images and ideas to a range of audiences.


Description

Production
Notes in Motion Productions engage audiences in original and dynamic dance theatre on a human level. Productions pivot around core themes and through an interplay between athletic and pedestrian motion, activate emotional expression, character, and narrative in a rich and abstract collage. Performances include: short works from different Choreographers united by common theme and design, one-act and full evening length works by Amanda Selwyn and collaborating choreographers, art installations, multi-media presentations, Open Workshops, benefits, special events, and collaborative projects among Company Members.

Education/Outreach
Notes in Motion offers an array of performance, classroom, and professional development programs to diverse populations. These programs are united by our singular approach to arts education, The Movement Exchange Method, in which students, both adults and children, learn in a similar fashion as Company Artists do in the Workshop. The Movement Exchange Method is an active approach to creating performance works in which raw ideas are energized by ongoing community input and dialogue. Students take on leadership roles in their own learning, have creative input in the design of the curriculum, and participate in critical discussions of the work of their peers. As a result, Notes in Motion's Education/Outreach Program acts as a tool for learning important life skills which transcend dance and movement.

Workshop
In the professional development Workshop, Notes in Motion continually expands its network of artist collaborators and harvests creative ideas for new performance works. The Workshop is a safe environment for artists to take risks and hone their skills. Through presentations and exercises, Workshop Artists contribute movement ideas to the community and the community, in turn, activates the creative process of individuals by supplying rigorous critique and analysis.
