PERFORMANCE

(M)IMOSA / TWENTY LOOKS

or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church (M)
   

With CECELIA BENGOLEA, FRANCOIS CHAIGNAUD,
MARLENE MONTEIRO FREITAS,
and TRAJAL HARRELL

 Provocative and outlandish? Riotous and fabulous? Absolutely!

This mash-up of parallel dance histories—Judson and Voguing—is a frenetic free-for-all that bounces from soul music to sculptural acrobatics, from elaborate drag (including an eerily faithful rendition of Prince’s “Darling Nikki”) to amazingly virtuosic movement, all mixed as a gender-blender tribute to the power and pleasure of persona.

The third installment of Twenty Looks or Paris Is Burning at the Judson Church—which includes (XS), (S), and (L), (M)imosa—is a choreographic collaboration among four remarkable performers: Cecilia Bengolea, Francois Chaignaud, Marlene Monteiro Freitas, and Trajal Harrell. (M) is inspired by Paris Is Burning, the seminal documentary film about Voguing, the artist’s personal histories, and collective experiences.


Contains strong language and nudity; recommended for audience members 18 years and older.
