In this world premiere, choreographer Netta Yerushalmy brings together a cast of singular and fierce performers from Tel Aviv and New York. Drawing on movement sensibilities from both locales, as well as on Baroque iconography, the work meanders between the representational and the formal, the elegant and the awkward, ultimately probing at the actual or perceived differences between the two.

Past works by Yerushalmy, a 2012 Guggenheim and Six Points Fellow, have often been lauded for their unique and explosive physicality as well as their intricate compositional structures.

This work features performances by dancers Joanna Kotze, Toni Melaas, Ofir Yudilevitch, and Jesse Zaritt. Sound score and music composition by Mark degli Antoni. Set and lighting design by Lenore Doxee. Costume design and fabrication by Magdalena Jarkowiec.



Devouring Devouring is supported by a grant from the Six Points Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Artists, a partnership of Avoda Arts, JDub Records and the Foundation for Jewish Culture, and made possible with major funding from UJA-Federation of New York. The creation of this work was also made possible by grants from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, the Fund for Creative Communities, and a Swing Space residency, all administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. This project was developed in a two-year residency at the TriBeCa Performing Arts Center and completed in residencies at the Misgav Dance Center and Baryshnikov Arts Center. Support for transportation was provided by the Office of Cultural Affairs, Consulate General of Israel in New York, and Consulate General of Israel in Philadelphia.
