Straight from a two-year residency at MoMA, New York, American artist and choreographer, Trajal Harrell, comes to the Barbican for a major performance exhibition.
The Art Gallery has been transformed into an immersive space, where eighteen dancers, including Harrell himself, showcase 14 of his innovative and playful works. Visitors are able to weave through these live performances making their own route through the gallery space.
The exhibition presents a unique opportunity to experience Harrell’s entire body of work from 1999 through to the present day in one place and at one time. Emotional and exhilarating, the performances explore ideas around the body, gender, race, sexuality and culture.
