Trajal Harrell

Dancer, choreographer

Trajal Harrell is a choreographer-dancer working internationally between theater and visual art contexts. His work came to strong visibility with The Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church Series (2007-2018) which juxtaposed historical currents between the voguing dance tradition and the early postmodern dance tradition. Since 2013, he is involved in another long-term research between butoh dance and early modern dance. Dancer of the Year and Dancer of the Year Shop continue this trajectory.
