Trajal Harrell: The Ghost of Montpellier Meets the Samurai
In his latest work, the inventive and irreverent choreographer Trajal Harrell explores the human passion for art, through an imaginary meeting between a Butoh dance pioneer, a leader of the French Nouvelle Danse movement, and an influential New York theater impresario. Harrell has built a career making "subtly brilliant" (Village Voice) works that probe the past and savor the present, that relish high art and pop culture in equal doses, and that question the very nature of theatrical performance. The Ghost of Montpellier features eight dancers in a collage of dance, song, and dramatic text.
