Princeton Arts Fellow Netta Yerushalmy presents Paramodernities Live, a series of lecture-performances, or dance-experiments, generated through deconstructions of landmark modern choreographies, performed alongside contributions by scholars and writers who situate these iconic works within the larger project of Modernity. Exploring foundational tenets of modern discourse — such as sovereignty, race, feminism, and ableism — Paramodernities includes public discussions as inseparable parts of the work.
One installment of Paramodernities will stream each day, followed by a live conversation between Netta Yerushalmy with special guests and Q&A with the audience.
View livestream videos at nettay.com (available for viewing after each event through Sunday, May 10, 2020).
Audio description and closed captioning of the pre-recorded 2019 performances at New York Live Arts will be available on May 4th at nettay.com/live.
Closed captioning of the complete livestream (including the post-show discussion) will be available the day after each livestream at nettay.com/live.
