Trajal Harrell, choreographer and editor of "Movement Research," scrutinizes the essence of fashion shows in “Showpony”. The situations around the catwalk can be so intimate that the question arises: What does it mean to sell one’s body?

"The three dancers jump from hyper interpretations of runway behavior to robotic movement phrases reminiscent of early postmodern dance undertaken with a desperate urgency." (New York Times)


Artists’ Talk with Trajal Harrell after the show on Sun 21.6.
