Celebrated American choreographer Trajal Harrell continues his exploration of Tatsumi Hijikata in the newly commissioned performance In the Mood for Frankie, designed specifically for the Mona Bismarck American Center space.
Harrell turns toward the figure of the muse, both in Hijikata’s work and in his own personal influences. Drawing upon a diverse set of inspirations, including butoh dancer Yoko Ashikawa, modern dancer-choreographer Katherine Dunham, filmmaker Wong Kar Wai, fashion designer Rei Kawakubo, dancer and choreographer Kazuo Ohno, and Harrell’s own working relationships with dancers Thibault Lac and Ondrej Vidlar, this piece “spills out like a park of muses settled and unsettled between history and the imagination.”
In the Mood for Frankie is commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and co-produced, in collaboration with the Singapore International Festival of the Arts.
The ticket office will close at 6:55 pm. Late comers will not be accepted.
SOLD OUT FOR THE 22/11-23/11
