“Restraint and minimalism can be just as sexy and intriguing as vivacity and flair. Combined, they present a seduction impossible to resist.” —The New York Times
What would have happened if one of the early postmodern choreographers from Judson Church had gone uptown to perform in the ball scene in Harlem? In M2M, three dancers collide the formalism and minimalism of postmodernism with the flamboyance and performativity of voguing. Layering these movements with the soaring and powerful vocals of a gospel, Trajal Harrell repositions the influence of jazz, funk, and RnB on postmodern dance, imagining a sweaty, ecstatic, and beautiful new possibility on stage.
