Trajal Event

“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.

Sunday, Sept 14 (XS): 4pm, 5pm, 7pm and 8pm 

Monday, Sept 15 (S): 8pm 

Tuesday, Sept 16 (M)imosa: 8pm, co-created with Cecilia Bengolea, François Chaignaud, and Marlene Monteiro Freitas

Trajall Harrell: Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church is made possible with support from Carmine Boccuzzi & Bernard Lumpkin, Selby Drummond & Matthew Doull, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, and The Harkness Foundation for Dance, and in part by public funds from 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.

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.
