The Köln Concert

Copyright: Reto Schmid 
Im Vordergrund: Trajal Harrell. Im Hintergrund: Ondrej Vidlar, Titilayo Adebayo, Nodan Bojas Mair, Songhay Toldon, Maria Ferreira Silva 

By: Trajal Harrell
To the music of Keith Jarrett and Joni Mitchell
Used by arrangement with ECM Records

Trajal Harrell responds to the physical distance rules for the stage with a plan he has been pursuing for years: a choreography to Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert, the most successful piano solo recording of all time that Harrell opens with songs by Joni Mitchell. It is a matter of learning anew, how to make theatre. Dance. In front of an audience. With distance and caution. But not with any less devotion.

From September 12-18 2020, Trajal Harrell showed his solo performance The Return of La Argentina, the lecture-performance The Conspiracy of Performance with Perle Palombe and the world premiere of The Köln Concert for seven dancers.
