About the Grant

$25,000 for Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church is the title of a set of dances by Trajal Harrell. These works bring Harrell’s work since 2001 on the parallel histories of the postmodern dance tradition and the voguing dance tradition to an apex. "What would have happened in 1963 if someone from the voguing ball scene in Harlem had come downtown to perform alongside the early postmoderns at Judson Church?" Rather than illustrating a historical fiction, the work transplants this proposition into a contemporary context and debate about the seduction of the audience.
