“What would have happened in 1963 if someone from the voguing ballroom scene in Harlem had come downtown to perform alongside the early postmoderns at Judson Church?” Five years since posing this provocative question, New York choreographer Trajal Harrell has meshed the parallel traditions of postmodern dance and voguing, revealing sharp perspectives on race, gender, and notions of identity. For the first time in the U.S., experience the whole performance series – from extra small (XS) to made-to-measure (M2M) – in the span of one week. Co-presented with FIAF’s Crossing the Line 2014. Curated by Matthew Lyons.

Crossing the Line is the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s annual fall festival presenting interdisciplinary works and performances created by artists from around the world in New York. The festival provides opportunities for New Yorkers to explore the dialogue between artist and participant, examine how artists help re-imagine the world, and engage in the vital role artists play as critical thinkers and catalysts for social evolution. Crossing the Line is initiated and produced by FIAF in partnership with leading cultural institutions and takes place this year from September 8–October 18, 2014.

Historically speaking, the cultural importance of The Kitchen has revolved at least in part around its very obscurity.
