Netta Yerushalmy is a choreographer and performer based in NYC. Her research-based dance-making is propelled by a passion for, and trust in, the body as a site of ineluctable knowledge. Her work is aesthetically and ethically committed to generating questions, not answers. Yerushalmy received prestigious awards and fellowships from USA Artists, Guggenheim Foundation, Princeton University, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York City Center, New York Public Library, Bogliasco/Van Cleef & Arples, Center for Ballet and the Arts, among others. Her work was presented at such venues as Jacob’s Pillow, The Joyce Theater, New York Live Arts, HAU Berlin, PEAK Performances, Wexner, and the Guggenheim Museum. She has received support from the Watermill Center, MANCC, and NCC AKron. Yerushalmy works across genres and disciplines. She was part of sculptor Josiah McElheny’s “Prismatic Park”, choreographed a Red Hot Chili Peppers music video, contributed to cellist Maya Beiser & composer Julia Wolfe’s “Spinning”, and has collaborated on evenings of theory and performance at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry, Berlin. Beyond dancing in her own works, Yerushalmy has also performed and toured with Pam Tanowitz Dance, Doug Varone & Dancers, the Metropolitan Opera, among others.
Netta Yerushalmy’s residency at Baryshnikov Arts is in partnership with the Bogliasco Foundation.
