Grec 2018: Antigone Jr. ++

  • Dance

Time Out says

Considered one of the top choreographers of his generation, American dancer and choreographer Trajal Harrell has earned his reputation with pieces such as those that make up the series 'Twenty Looks or Paris Is Burning at The Judson Church', a singular mix of voguing (which got its start among African American drag queens in the '80s) and the first steps of contemporary dance. One of the pieces that make up this series, which Harrell performs at the Antic Teatre as part of the Grec festival, is 'Antigone Jr. ++', part of the Sophocles tragedy – specifically about the relationship between Antigone and her sister Ismene.

Choreography: Trajal Harrell. Dancers: Trajal Harrell, Thibault Lac. Story: Gérard Mayen.
