Water Will (in Melody)
- F Hearing-impaired spectators welcome
- G Hearing loops
- A Little or no text
A choreographic piece for four dancers, Water Will (in Melody) uses melodrama as a starting point, to then morph into a dystopian account that grapples with language; a space in which the dancers handle desire, imagination and the looming sense of an ending. Creating a dissonant fantasy world that is at once curious, playful and sad, Ligia Lewis offers up a fictional story free from any metaphorical or symbolic weight. This new creation is the last chapter of a triptych begun with Sorrow Swag, followed by minor matter, presented at Les Urbaines and at Arsenic respectively. The Dominican-American choreographer and dancer develops work that is very personal, rich and complex, and interrogates the metaphors linked to the body and the way it is embedded in society.
