In the Heart of the Country: Judson Church is Ringing in Harlem (Made-to-Measure)
Performance by Trajal Harrell

"Judson Church is Ringing in Harlem (Made-to-Measure)" is the last dance work in an expansive six works series "Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church", conceived by Trajal Harrell, an American choreographer and dancer.

The project is Harrell’s in-depth critical reexamination of the seminal minimalist attitudes and aesthetics of postmodern American dance and those of Harlem pop tradition of voguing and its drag ballroom scene and culture. "What would have happened in 1963 if someone from the Voguing ball scene in Harlem had come downtown to perform alongside the early post-moderns at Judson Church?" is a challenging proposition repositioning social and aesthetic politic of dance and movement.
