“Like the best science fiction, Lewis’s work is most successful in its insistence that the spare can be made spectacular.” —Artforum
Four performers delve into a deconstructed landscape of water in this dark, theatrical meditation on showbiz, the surreal, sensuality, and the end of times. Created by Berlin-based/US choreographer Ligia Lewis, a rising star in Europe’s world of performance, the work quickly departs from gothic melodrama to poetically wrestle with the concept of “will.” Deploying an ingenious movement vocabulary with song, text, and a string of pearls, the performers unpack gender and race, hopelessness and potential, alienation and belonging.
