Join choreographer Netta Yerushlamy in a movement workshop that explores, interrogates and re-frames the Western dance canon. This workshop is appropriate for intermediate-level dancers.

The Connecticut premiere of choreographer Netta Yerushalmy's Paramodernities on Friday, October 4, 2019 at 7:30pm in the CFA Theater features a series of four dance-experiments, deconstructing landmark dances by Vaslav Nijinsky, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, and Alvin Ailey.

There will be a free artist talk with Netta Yerushalmy on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 4:45pm in the Cross Street Dance Studio, located at 160 Cross Street on the Wesleyan campus in Middletown. She will be joined by Professor of English and Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Christina Crosby and other scholars to discuss "The Choreography of Rehabilitation" in the disability- and race-themed segment (#6) of Paramodernities. There will be a screening of a film of this work, which is based on George Balanchine’s Agon.
