Paramodernities (3 Installments)
Live Artery studio showing, for the full theatre performance later this season please click here.
Nerushalmy’s acclaimed Paramodernities series returns to Live Artery with a showing of installments (85 minutes, Open to presenters only). In this unique project, iconic modern choreographies are deconstructed and performed alongside contributions by scholars and writers who explore foundational tenets of modern discourse, such as sovereignty, race, feminism, and disability. One installment uses Alvin Ailey’s “Revelation” to examine coercion as concept and embodiment, another positions Vaslav Nijinsky’s “Le Sacre du Printemps” as a political turning point, the third reflects on Bob Fosse’s “Sweet Charity” through the lens of taste intertwined with sex and spectacle.
