Never Stop!

Festival TransAmériques 2016 By Philip Szporer Judson Church is Ringing in Harlem (Made-to-Measure) Trajal Harrell

The premise for Judson Church is Ringing in Harlem (Made-to-Measure) centres around what might happen if the Judson Church postmodern artists (Yvonne Rainer, Trisha Brown and the lot) had gone uptown to Harlem to perform alongside the vogue ballroom performers. (His previous works saw the voguers going downtown.)

Antigone Sr.

Trajal Harrell By Philip Szporer Twenty Looks or Paris Is Burning at the Judson Church (L) Festival TransAmériques 2014

As choreographer Trajal Harrell tells the audience at the start of the show, his series Twenty Looks or Paris Is Burning at the Judson Church, comes in eight sizes. We were about to see Antigone Sr., which is the large variety. Regardless of the size, the proposition remains the same: “What would have happened in 1963 if a voguer from a New York house ball strutted downtown to Greenwich Village from Harlem to perform alongside the collective of Judson Church postmodernists?”

Paris is Burning at the Judson Church

Based in New York City, Trajal Harrell is much in demand internationally for his conceptually challenging dance propositions. Today is the final performance of Antigone Sr. (L) at the Festival TransAmériques.
