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.
