minor matter by Ligia Lewis

(click on image to enlarge)


Berlin-based choreographer Ligia Lewis uses dance, visual arts and the theater to pose questions concerning otherness and empathy in this second installment of a racially-conscious trilogy. Three performers build on minor aesthetics through a dynamic merger of the theater's parts; ultimately negotiating themselves in relation to visual and phonic play. In a time of anti-blackness, minor matter saturates the black box space with the elusiveness of black expression.
