5. DANCE: Antigone Sr./Twenty Looks or Paris Is Burning at the Judson Church
There’s nothing quite like a mash-up of ancient Greek tragedy, Harlem drag ball culture, and the early-1960s postmodern dance scene of Greenwich Village — and there probably never has been, until choreographer Trajal Harrell created this work. He was inspired by his discovery that Harlem balls originated in the same era as a groundbreaking dance collective based at the Village’s Judson Church. Described as “a genre-bending exploration of race, gender, sexuality, culture, and history,” the piece, which has already been a sensation in New York, is having its premiere West Coast engagement at REDCAT in Los Angeles now through Sunday. The (L), by the way, means it’s the large-size version of the production. Tickets and more info here. — Trudy Ring
