The Return of
La Argentina

By and with: Trajal Harrell

Antonia Mercé aka La Argentina was possibly the most famous Spanish dancer of the 20th century. 40 years after her death, the founders of the Japanese Butoh (“dance of darkness”) Kazuo Ohno and Tatsumi Hijikata honoured her in the 70s with the piece Admiring La Argentina. Trajal Harrell’s solo is a homage: to La Argentina, to Ohno and Hijikata, and to the networks of history that lie beneath the present time.

After the 30-minute performance, you are invited to stay for the post-show talk with Trajal Harrell and engage in conversation with the artist.
