TICKLE THE SLEEPING GIANT, New York City, received $9,000 in support of the development and presentation of Used, Abused and Hung Out to Dry, by Artistic Director Trajal Harrell. The mission of Tickle the Sleeping Giant is to advance interest in and understanding of postmodern and contemporary dance and their application to everyday life. It carries out this mission by creating original dance works, performances, interdisciplinary collaborations, and publishing initiatives. Hiroshima Mon Amour is a work for three dancers divided into two parts: Mon Hiroshima and Mon Amour. Taking its title from the 1959 film by Alain Resnais about two lovers, a Japanese man and a French woman involved in a conversation about memory and forgetfulness. Harrells new work is a conversation with culture and aesthetic style where remembering and forgetting play together to develop something neither Butoh nor non-Butoh but wholly art. Harrells work has, since 2001, been based on a theoretical conversation between the parallel aesthetic histories of the voguing dance tradition and the early postmodern dance tradition.
