Performance by American choreographer Trajal Harrell (1973, Douglas, USA).

Harrell problematizes, in his works, the history, construction and interpretation of contemporary dance, bringing together references from the experimental field of the history of dance with performativities identified with other bodies and spaces, such as voguing, hoochi-koochie and butoh.

His work has been presented in festivals in Europe, Canada and Brazil, and at venues that include The Kitchen (New York, USA), Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, USA) and REDCAT (Los Angeles, USA). He has staged performances in the context of the visual arts in institutions such as MoMA, MoMA PS1, The New Museum and The Bronx Museum (New York, USA), Fondation Cartier pour L’art Contemporain (Paris, France), Centre Pompidou-Metz (Metz, France) and Fundação de Serralves (Porto, Portugal).
