Drawing on distinct histories in hip-hop, modern dance, West African, Tap, synchronized swimming, ice skating, and House, the corps explores the conflicts and possibilities created from aesthetic and cultural collisions in order to address questions of cultural bias and misunderstanding through form. Abby Z and the New Utility are made up artists from the United States to Senegal to Taiwan, and the unique physical history and knowledge of the artists are brought to the forefront in Radioactive Practice, which will have it’s full premiere at Live Arts in 2020. 7:00 PM, NETTA YERUSHALMY: Paramodernities (3 Installments) for APAP Only 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. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=339760 New York Live Arts New York Live Arts
