Trajal Harrell Antigone Sr. / Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church (L)


What would have occurred had postmodern dance met with the Harlem voguing scene in 1963? Trajal Harrell has started a series of pieces to answer this question. Seeking echoes between voguing – a movement born in African-American and Latino homosexual communities – and Ancient Greek theater, Antigone Sr. uses posture, travesty and excess as a way to challenge political, sexual and aesthetic norms.
