Trajal Harrell To Perform “Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church” at The Kitchen This Fall
New York choreographer Trajal Harrell is set to present his “Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church” for the first time in the U.S. at The Kitchen this fall.
Harell's performance piece combines postmodern dance and voguing with perspectives on race, gender and notions of identity. The whole performance series--from extra small (XS) to made-to-measure (M2M)--is co-presented by French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s Crossing the Line 2014. The annual fall festival presents interdisciplinary works and performances in New York, created by artists from around the world. FIAF will take place this year from September 8 to October 18.
"Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church" comes courtesy of support from Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, and The Harkness Foundation for Dance, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
Below is the full exhibition schedule for “Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning.” Tickets are $20 each performance. Watch a snippet of "Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning” performed by Harrell at Festival Panorama in Rio de Janiero, Brazil in 2012.
