National Museum of the American Indian


Commissioned by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council


As part of her new cross-disciplinary project using Modernism in dance to explore different contemporary discourses, choreographer and performer Netta Yerushalmy presents Paramodernities #2—devoted to Martha Graham’s Night Journey—and Paramodernities #3—devoted to Alvin Ailey’s Revelations. Including live presentations by scholars and performances by a diverse cast of dancers, Paramodernities will also incorporate public discussions with viewers as it inhabits different sites in the museum.
