On the Ground

Never Stop!

Festival TransAmériques 2016 By Philip Szporer Judson Church is Ringing in Harlem (Made-to-Measure) Trajal Harrell

The premise for Judson Church is Ringing in Harlem (Made-to-Measure) centres around what might happen if the Judson Church postmodern artists (Yvonne Rainer, Trisha Brown and the lot) had gone uptown to Harlem to perform alongside the vogue ballroom performers. (His previous works saw the voguers going downtown.)

 
On the Ground

West Coast Swagger

By Jillian Groening

Ralph Escamillan answers questions about his experience training with Modus Operandi, his numerous collaborations and his plans for the future.

Getting Severe

A combination of modelling, theatre and dance established in the Harlem ballroom scene, vogue could not be further from its roots in China, but these dancers make it look right at home.

 

The Need to Feel Special

The Principle of Pleasure By Jordan Arseneault Festival Grand Cru

In the kind of serendipity that feels like a blessing from the zeitgeist, Gerard Reyes took to the La Chapelle Theatre the same week as the twenty-fifth anniversary of canonical voguing documentary Paris is Burning.

Paris is Burning at the Judson Church

Based in New York City, Trajal Harrell is much in demand internationally for his conceptually challenging dance propositions. Today is the final performance of Antigone Sr. (L) at the Festival TransAmériques.
