Throughout a hyper-generous choreography, three dancers push against the limits of the stage to the point of exhaustion. Constructed on the logic of interdependence, lights, sound, images, architecture and dancers mingle together, giving life to a poetic and vibrant space. The dancer and choreographer Ligia Lewis continues her research into the social conditions that affect the body. With minor matter, the second part of a choreographic triptych begun in 2015, she serves up a powerful manifest.
Ligia Lewis (1983) is a dancer and choreographer. She creates affective choreographies while interrogating the metaphors and social inscriptions of the body. With her first two full-length stage works, the solo Sorrow Swag (2015) and the trio minor matter (2016), she aroused great attention on an international level. Her work has been shown at various venues and festivals, such as Abrons Art Center/American Realness (New York City), Flax/Fahrenheit (Los Angeles), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), or TATE Modern (London). Lewis was awarded the Prix Jardin d’Europe for her work Sorrow Swag. And she recently received the Bessie Award for Outstanding Production 2017 for minor matter. She is based in Berlin and New York.
