About This Project

WHEN: ONE DANCE WEEK 2015

 

(M)IMOSA is the title of the medium version (size M) from a series of shows by Trajal Harrell in seven sizes – from XS to XL, called “Twenty Looks or Paris Is Burning at The Judson Church”. The conceptual framework of the shows revolves around the idea of the encounter between two parallel lines of dance narratives, which has not had an intersection point in the time of their emergence – neither a social nor an aesthetic one. These are the Harlem “voguing” of the 60s, organized on the so-called ballroom scene, the place for the marginalized community of homosexuals, African-Americans and Latinos on the one hand, and the new postmodern wave associated with the dynamic formation of artists around the Judson Church Dance Theater, on the other. Trajal Harrell is an American artist, choreographer and performer from New York. In 2012, one of the shows in the series Antigone Sr. received the Bessie Award for Best Production.
