“Netta Yerushalmy’s Perfect Dance” (The New Yorker), is a self-reflexive performance, oscillating between an interest in facing personal history and a desire to de-subjectify presence. The choreographer performs before a backdrop of continually-looping video snippets of herself as a young dancer in Israel and the U.S which gives way to a trio of analytic formal bodies. This tightly-composed work is ultimately rendered as pictorial matter; abstract textures and breathing figures placed against a landscape of stark white surfaces.
Paramodernities is a series of eight dance-experiments that are generated through a systematic deconstruction of landmark choreographies, performed alongside contributions by writers, philosophers, and historians who situate these iconic works in modernity’s larger context. Exploring some foundational tenants of modern discourse–such as sovereignty, race, feminism, and nihilism– Paramodernities will include public discussions as inseparable parts of each installment.
