Audio Description for Dance: Lessons from Paramodernities

March 15, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A male dancer wearing a black leotard leaps to the left. To the foreground, on the right, a woman sits on a box with her back towards us, facing toward the dancer.

20 Cooper Square, Room 222

Lunch provided; vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options available.

Join us for a lunchtime conversation between Georgina Kleege, Netta YerushalmyMara Mills, David Linton, and Mary Murphy about their experience describing George Balanchine’s abstract modernist ballet, Agon, for both blind and sighted audiences. Their response to Agon is part of the Paramodernities series at New York Live Arts March 14-17th.

About Paramodernities:

After over three years of research, development, and multiple performances nationwide, the complete six-part Paramodernities series comes to New York.

The run is March 14th-17th @ New York Live Arts. Audio Description will be available for performances on March 16th.

This is an interdisciplinary epic work that weaves theory and performance into a four-hour-long hybrid event. A diverse cast of 20 exceptional dancers and scholars, ranging in age from 20 to 67, perform languaged and embodied responses to iconic modernist choreographies by Nijinsky, Graham, Ailey, Cunningham, Fosse, and Balanchine.
