Trajal Harrell / Schauspielhaus Zürich Dance Ensemble

The Köln Concert

26.8. ● Meet the Artist

Duration 50 min

Inspired by voguing and ballroom culture, American choreographer Trajal Harrell interprets Keith Jarrett’s famous piano solo. On stage with six phenomenal performers from his newly founded Schauspielhaus Zürich Dance Ensemble, Harrell brings a delicate choreography interwoven with references from modern dance, classical antiquity and butoh. With an intro to music by Joni Mitchell, the dancers transform into unusual and autonomous beings who defy their abandonment in moments of sadness, sensuality and struggle.
