Netta Yerushalmy's MOVEMENT

Join ADF for maximalist professional dance performance!

MOVEMENT, by Netta Yerushalmy, synthesizes over one hundred citations from an expansive range of dances across genres and cultures. It is a radical quilt of borrowed material that stretches the idea of pluralism until it almost snaps. It features a score by award-winning composer Paula Matthusen and is performed by dancers from Korea, Senegal, Taiwan, and the US. This piece follows Yerushalmy's PARAMODERNITIES, a six-part series generated through reverently and violently dissecting iconic modern choreographies, provoking dynamic conversations with the troubled legacies of the past. MOVEMENT continues Yerushalmy's practice of repurposing, reorienting, and recontextualizing dance, spinning fragments of seemingly unrelated works into an enthralling new whole. This maximalist performance highlights dance as an inevitable and unifying force in a brittle and confused world.
