Trajal Harrell

Trajal Harrel is a north American choreographer and dancer who studied at Trisha Brown School, National Dance Center (Yvonne Rainer), City College San Francisco and Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance.
His shows have been performed in New York and elsewhere in the United States, in theaters such as The Kitchen and in international festivals such as the Festival d’Automne à Paris, Holland Festival in Amsterdam and Impulstanz in Vienna. His performances have also been presented in places dedicated to the visual arts, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

With a very imaginative approach to history, he reinterprets our past or rather the history of dance. His research is based on the dialogue between post-modern dance and the New York voguing scene. Thus his imagination misunderstands chronological, geographical and cultural distances.
