Trajal Harrell (USA) Caen Amour

In Caen Amour Trajal Harrell creates an encounter between the pioneer of early modern dance, Loïe Fuller, the instigator of butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata, Comme des Garçons founder, Rei Kawakubo... and the hoochie coochie. These seductive belly dance spectacles performed in Eastern costumes first emerged at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, as the precursor to vaudeville and striptease. In Caen Amour, Harrell explores a moment in dance history when female artists presented performances at the crossroads between entertainment, erotic dancing and early experiments in modern dance.

Trajal Harrell’s work borrows equally from art and dance history, fashion, pop culture, and the avant-garde. It has been presented in venues and visual art contexts around the world, including MoMA PS1, New York, ICA, Boston and Centre Pompidou, Paris.
