Between Gestures: Trajal Harrell and Ola Macijewska

The MCA presents solo performances in the museum’s public spaces by global artists Trajal Harrell and Ola Macijewska as part of Between Gestures.

Known for his juxtaposition of voguing and postmodern dance traditions, Harrell presents his latest solo work Okidoki in a series made for gallery spaces. Harrell’s performance brings together his research on the surreal and radical style of Tatsuma Hijkata, the founder of butoh, or Japanese dance theatre, with early vogue and runway forms. Macijewska’s performance, Loie Fuller: Research, uses movement and costume to examine the relationship between action and object, and the agency of each. Inspired by Dancing Dress—an iconic performance by modern dance pioneer Loie Fuller (1862-1928)—Macijewska dances with a large cloak, creating sculptural forms as she swoops, glides, and swirls the fabric around her body.
