Paramodernities offers an utterly unique hybrid of academic conference, dance performance, and town hall gathering. Join for one evening of these screened dance-experiments or all three.
The series weaves theory and performance into a brain-tickling journey. With equal parts reverence and violence, choreographer Netta Yerushalmy and a cast of 20 dancers and scholars, ranging in age from 21 to 69, perform responses to iconic works from artists ranging from Bob Fosse to Alvin Ailey. Paramodernities was named as one of the “20 Top Works of the Last 20 Years” by Dance Magazine.
