Trajal Harrell - Hoochie Koochie, review: A deep dive into dance history
Hoochie Koochie is the first solo show for a choreographer at the Barbican by Trajal Harrell. Little known in the United Kingdom, American dancer and choreographer Trajal Harrell based his body of work on the notion of “what if?” For instance, what if Japanese butoh dancer and a French choreographer had met for a boogie in a New York bar? In his work, Harrell’s recurrent main preoccupation is the mashing-up of different historical dance figures and the language of the cat-walk. Overall, Hoochie Koochie is a stimulating show from a singular artist.

'We found it rolled up in a tube': Alice Cooper discovers Warhol classic after 40 years
American rock star Alice Cooper has found an Andy Warhol masterpiece potentially worth millions rolled up in a tube, forgotten there for 40 years. It sat in storage alongside artefacts including an electric chair that Cooper used in the 70s as part of his show. The work is a red Little Electric Chair silkscreen from Warhol’s Death and Disaster series. It is only four years ago that Shep Gordon, Cooper’s long-time manager met an art dealer who advised him to find the artwork. However, the artwork is unsigned and the Andy Warhol foundation stopped providing authentication after 2011, thus diminishing its value.
