Refuge is a moving collage that maps our relationship to our surroundings, our community, our space, and ourselves. An evening-length dance theatre work, Refuge highlights how we create safe space in our lives. Inspired by Francesco Clemente’s art installation, Encampment, Selwyn’s company of five dancers dramatize solitude and connection within a delicate landscape of costume and scenic design by Anna-Alisa Belous, sound design by Joel Wilhelmi, and lighting design by Dan Ozminkowski. When seeking personal refuge, we go deep inside ourselves on an internal journey of transformation and enlightenment. Selwyn translates this personal journey into a vocabulary of immediate, athletic, sensuous, and raw movement that has come to define her work. The piece includes a progressive series of solos and duets punctuated by group sections that magnify the personal experience into a shared one.
