This Dance Showcases The Horror Of War At 92Y
The 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center is hosting the New York City premiere performance of Kurt Jooss’ The Green Table by the Paul Taylor Dance Company on Wednesday, April 6 ,celebrating the work’s 90th anniversary. This anti-war production from Jooss, who was considered a pioneering choreographer, dancer and theoretician and “one of the world’s most brilliant dance minds,” was first performed in 1932 during Hitler’s rise to power. Cinematic, packed with drama, visually stunning and still shocking, it’s a profoundly human work of social protest. Jooss’ genius for expressing emotion with “piercing truth and vibrant theatricality” has lost none of its power in the passage of time; his message of the futile, relentless tragedy of war is powerfully apposite today. Jada Pearman (pictured above) stars. Following the performance, policy experts Dr. Stephen Biddle and Janine di Giovanni discuss the work and its relationship to war, policy, and atrocity.
The live-streamed performance is available-on-demand for 72 hours. The cost is $15. If you live in New York City, you can see the show IRL. Tickets from $25. Get tickets at 92Y.org/GreenTable.
