Post-show discussion with Trajal Harrell at Sadler’s Wells
Block Universe organised an after-show talk between Louise O’Kelly and Trajal Harrel at Lilian Baylis Studio / Sadler’s Wells after the presentation of Twenty Looks or Paris Is Burning at The Judson Church (S) during the 2016 edition of the Festival
Trajal Harrell’s current practice examines butoh dance from the theoretical praxis of voguing. This latest body of work includes Used Abused and Hung Out to Dry, which premiered at The Museum of Modern Art, where he has begun a two-year residency. An American artist, Harrell’s work has been presented at many major venues and international festivals including The New Museum, New York, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Centre Pompidou, Paris, and Art Basel-Miami Beach.
