Trajal Harrell

Caen Amour

Tanz im August

Dancers wearing flowing, colourful, continually changing costumes, are moving against the backdrop of an oversized doll’s house. They strike contrapposto poses. The New York-based choreographer Trajal Harrell is once more diving into the history of dance, this time into the epoch when various influences came together to form modern dance. “Caen Amour” stages a sensual meeting of the hoochie koochie – an ‘orientalist’ belly-dance like imitation from the USA – the Jugendstil icon Loïe Fuller, and Tatsumi Hijikata, the founder of butoh. What emerges is a cross between a hoochie koochie show, a runway show, an installation and a dance lab.
