MOVEMENT

A new dance work by award winning choreographer Netta Yerushalmy, featuring a bifurcated electronic sound score by two potent female composers.

Award-winning choreographer Netta Yerushalmy will collaborate with two divergent female composers on MOVEMENT, a new evening-length dance work that “quilts” movement quotes from a wide range of dance and music across genres, cultures, and time periods. MOVEMENT follows Yerushalmy’s most recent major work, Paramodernities, a six-part series generated through reverently and violently dissecting iconic modern choreographies: Nijinsky’s Rite, Graham’s Night Journey, Balanchine’s Agon, Ailey’s Revelations, Fosse’s Sweet Charity, and remixed works by Cunningham. In MOVEMENT, existing dances are again quoted, but this time from a vast array of sources (from Lucinda Childs to hip hop music videos, for example). Dances are treated as fabric swatches for an intricate and elaborate quilt with radical and surprising results. In a project that is grappling with appropriating material by quilting movement textures and forms, engaging multiple composers is an important strategy to avoid a monolithic perspective. With multiplicity and discord as guiding creative principles, Baird and Matthusen will create an aural diptych for the work.
