Trajal Harrell

Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church (S)

MON JAN 10 . 1:00 PM


“What would have happened in 1963 if someone from the Voguing dance tradition in Harlem had come down to Judson Church to perform alongside the early postmoderns?” is the proposition for Trajal Harrell’s series of dances that comes in five sizes- Extra Small (XS), Small (S), Medium (M), Larger (L), and Extra Large (XL). The (S) is a sixty minute solo danced by the choreographer with audience on three sides of the stage. Here, Trajal Harrell rewrites the minimalism and neutrality of postmodern dance with a new set of signs.
