PARAMODERNITIES

 

Paramodernities is a meditation on different tracks of modernism within and beyond the purview of dance. It is a series of dance experiments that I generate through systematically deconstructing landmark modern dance choreographies. Performed alongside contributions by scholars from different fields in the humanities, who situate these iconic works within the larger project of modernity, Paramodernities explores foundational tenants of modern discourse-- such as sovereignty, race, feminism, and nihilism-- and includes public discussions as integral parts of each installment.
