Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church (XS)
Tuesday, September 9
“Mr. Harrell has discovered a place of unaffected glamour—and with that a new way of seducing the audience.”
Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
Twenty-five minutes, twenty-five seats, one dancer.
The smallest performance in Trajal Harrell’s acclaimed series of dances, (XS) shines in its concentrated fusion of voguing and postmodern dance. There is no documentation of this work. (XS) exists in the spontaneous connection between one performer, creator Trajal Harrell, and one live audience. (XS), as in extra-small, is the eighth dance in Harrell’s series inspired by the question—if someone from the voguing ball scene in 1960s Harlem had ventured downtown to the early postmoderns at Judson Church, what would they have created?
