Event Description
In the Mood for Frankie

As the culmination of his two-year Annenberg Research Commission Residency project In one step are a thousand animals, Trajal Harrell continues his exploration of Tatsumi Hijikata in the new commissioned performance In the Mood for Frankie. In this work, Harrell turns toward the figure of the muse, both in Hijikata's work and in Harrell's personal influences. This performance draws upon a diverse set of inspirations, includingbutoh dancer Yoko Ashikawa, modern dancer-choreographer Katherine Dunham, filmmaker Wong Kar Wai, fashion designer Rei Kawakubo, singer Sade, dancer and choreographer Kazuo Ohno, and Harrell's own working relationships with dancers Thibault Lac and Ondrej Vidlar. In the artist's words, "In the Mood for Frankie spills out like a park of muses settled and unsettled between history and the imagination."
