Body and imagination join forces in Trajal Harrell’s work!
The workshop will be a chance to get closer to the dialogue between those two fundamental protagonists through a proper warm-up of the contemporary dancer and a series of exercices exploring mechanics and performativity. From walking to other ways of dancing, Trajal Harrell’s co-dancer Thibault Lac will give you an opportunity to experience some of the physicalities of the piece Antigone Junior / 20 Looks or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church (Plus), which is presented at this year’s Bastard festival.
Please register by sending an e-mail with name and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org within the 4th of September!
The workshops are open to performing artists (such as dancers and actors) and artists from other genres with interest for and experience from movement work. PLEASE NOTE: The different workshops require different experience level, but don’t hesitate to ask us if you are unsure of your qualification. PRODA-members are of course welcome in all workshops, and art students are welcome to apply for participation.
Thibault Lac studied architecture before completing the Performing Arts Research and Training Studios program in Brussels. Alongside his studies, he performed with the professional cast of The Show Must Go On by Jérôme Bel, and assisted Tino Sehgal on preparations for his 2010 exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
He has performed in the works of Daniel Linehan, Noé Soulier, Eleanor Bauer, Mathilde Monnier and theater director Daniel Jeanneteau, among others. He has been taking part in several sizes of Trajal Harrell’s project 20 Looks or Paris is Burning at the Judson Church and was named for it one of the dancers of 2012 by the New York Times.
Thibault Lac is a recipient of French Institute’s Hors Les Murs program for 2015.
