Netta Yerushalmy | Oct 27 at 8pm
Netta Yerushalmy presents a work-in-progress showing of Paramodernities, previously developed during a residency at Jacob’s Pillow in March 2017. With “fierce choreographic imagination” (The New York Times), Yerushalmy launches into her recent multidisciplinary project, which deconstructs landmark modern choreographies and performs them alongside contributions by scholars and writers who situate the iconic works and artists within the larger project of Modernism.
As part of its four-day residency, Paramodernities will expand upon its several iterations and develop material for a new installment devoted to Bob Fosse. The presentation will include installments devoted to Martha Graham and Alvin Ailey while scholar, Carol Ockman’s essay, titled “Trauma, Interdiction, and Agency in the House of Pelvic Truth,” is woven into the performance.
Paramodernities was co-commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow.
Netta Yerushalmy is an award winning dance artist based in New York City since 2000. Her work aims to engage with audiences by imparting the sensation of things as they are perceived, not as they are known, and to challenge how meaning is attributed and constructed. Netta received a Fellowship in Choreography from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, as well as a Jerome Robbins Bogliasco Fellowship, a Fellowship from the New York Foundation of the Arts, and a Six Points Fellowship.
She is currently a participant in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Extended Life program, and an Artist In Residence at Movement Research. Other 2016-17 residencies include Baryshnikov Arts Center, Watermill Center, Harkness Dance Center, and Jacob’s Pillow's Pillow Lab.
