12 - 12:45pm
Join choreographer Netta Yerushalmy, with Linda-Denise Fisher-Harrell (Artistic Director, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago) and Maggie Bridger (dancer/scholar), to discuss her work, Paramodernities, in a pre-performance conversation held on Zoom online at noon.
Paramodernities offers an utterly unique hybrid of academic conference, dance performance, and town hall gathering.
Sections being discussed and shown on Thursday, June 24:
Paramodernities #3: Revelations: The Afterlives of Slavery
A response to Alvin Ailey’s Revelations (1960)
Paramodernities #6: The Choreography of Rehabilitation: Disability and Race in Balanchine’s Agon
A response to George Balanchine's Agon (1957)
(The George Balanchine Trust is wholly unaffiliated with, and no choreography from George Balanchine’s "Agon" is included in, these performances.)
