Don’t Just Sit There; Talking About Dance
Run time: Approx 1hr

New York, NY 10075


Over the last decades, especially in France and the US, dance –the most ephemeral form of art production – fruitfully traversed minimalism, conceptual art, feminism, and postmodernism, always pushing and readjusting its boundaries.

Art historian, critic, and NYU professor, RoseLee Goldberg will discuss influences and legacies in dance with French choreographer Jérôme Bel, renowned for his cerebral, sometimes challenging but always witty productions that explore how dance is produced and transmitted, and iconic dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker Yvonne Rainer, one of the most influential artistic figures of the 20th century, whose work has been pivotal across multiple disciplines and movements. The conversation will look at their conceptual kinship and exchange, explore the transatlantic and generational choreographic conversation of the past 50 years, and shed light on both Bel’s and Rainer’s latest works.
