Trajal Harrell, one of the most prominent choreographers and dancers of his generation, is set to perform once more at the Museum of Modern Art. Performing “Hiroshima Mon Amour” last year at MoMA, Harrell blew the crowd away with his piece that included a mix of dancing styles as he investigated the works of Japanese choreographer Tatsumi Hijikata. In one step are a thousand animals, Harrell will continue his in-depth exploration of Hijikata’s work as a pioneer of butoh. Over the course of two days in two three-hour sessions, Harrell will focus on the conditions of museum space and the involvement of the spectator. The performance will be a group effort, as Harrell will call on musicians, composers, DJs, singers, and internationally renowned dancers to participate in the creation of In one step are a thousand animals. The performance will take place in The Werner and Elaine Dannheisser Lobby Gallery on the fourth floor.
