@home // Netta Yerushalmy
June 4 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Dancer and choreographer Netta Yerushalmy joins us from her home in New York City on Thursday, June 4 to perform a live, responsive improvisation. Feeding off prompts in real-time from the audience, Netta welcomes everyone to influence her movements and be part of artmaking. In advance or in real-time, ask questions, request movements, encourage responses to the architecture of her home, and comment on what you see. Netta will respond through her own idiosyncratic physicality and together we will have a realtime dialogue across movement, language, and virtual space. After the improvisation, Netta will share reflections and answer questions about her artistic practice.
Broadcasted live from the artists’ living room to yours and hosted by TIOH Arts & Culture’s artistic director Diana Wyenn, this 20-minute virtual performance is part of TIOH Arts & Culture’s @home series. Stream this performance for free on our Facebook page and stay tuned as we announce more @home sessions.
RSVP here to submit prompts for Netta in advance and to receive an email reminder on the day of the event.
