Paramodernities is 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 and artists within the larger project of Modernism. Exploring foundational tenets of modern discourse -such as sovereignty, race, feminism, and nihilism – Paramodernities includes public discussions as inseparable parts of each installment.

Netta Yerushalmy is an award-winning dance artist based in New York City. 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 works across genres and disciplines: she contributed to artist Josiah McElheny’s “Prismatic Park” at Madison Square Park, choreographed a Red Hot Chili Peppers music video, worked with cellist Maya Beiser and composer Julia Wolfe on “Spinning”, and collaborated on evenings of theory and performance at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry (ICI Berlin).

“This is an excitingly ambitious work.” – The New York Times

“Netta Yerushalmy is changing our view of modern masterpieces.”  -Dance Magazine
