Dancer of the Year

© Orpheas Emirzas

By Trajal Harrell

In 2018 Trajal Harrell was named "Dancer of the Year”. This award, which brings as much honour as it does questions, he has unceremoniously transformed into a two-part work; the first part is an enchantingly beautiful solo in which Harrell stands and dances alone on stage. The Dancer of the Year!
