IN THE MOOD FOR FRANKIE & THE RETURN OF LA ARGENTINA

American dancer-choreographer Trajal Harrell makes his Asian debut with two works related to his research on late Butoh founder Tatsumi Hijikata. Both works, In The Mood For Frankie and The Return Of La Argentina, feature hallmarks of Harrell's choreographic style of "voguing Butoh", which infuses Japanese Butoh dance with the Harlem voguing style. The shows are part of the Singapore International Festival of Arts.
