The performance The Untitled Still Life Collection by american choreographer Trajal Harrell (1973, Douglas, USA) will take place on 28 August, 11pm at Instituto Bardi /Casa de Vidro.
The Untitled Still Life Collection, a performance first conceived and interpreted by Harrell with a long-time friend, installation artist Sarah Sze, who collaborated to generate movement using a thin blue line of string. Rather than employing a conventional collaborative model (i.e, a visual artist creating a set for a choreographer to perform in), the two artists create a dialogue of mediums where the choreographic and sculptural minds entangle themselves transforming their individual properties and generating a new collective potential.
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.
