“In ballroom you’re accepted as who you are - or who you want to be.”
This week at The Kitchen, performance artist Trajal Harrell presents the latest incarnation of his decade-long exploration of combining postmodernism with the old-school voguing dance form. Presented in three different segments, Medium (M), Small (S), and Extra Small (XS) the different pieces explore the scenario of what it would have looked like if Harlem’s infamous vogue ball of the 1980s and 90s had moved downtown and cross-pollinated with the experimental and postmodern dance of the Judson Church scene.
