In her BLUE, RED, WHITE trilogy—of which the last two parts, minor matter and Water Will (in Melody), are included in the No Series—Ligia Lewis rejects what she calls “the tyranny of transparency and reason” in favor of opacity, and privileging the state of not knowing as a necessary state that can allow something new to emerge. Giving sound, lighting, and physical movement equal importance, Lewis’ affective choreographies trouble the idea of a stable identity which can be represented on stage, or anywhere else for that matter.
minor matter (2016) was conceived out of the artist’s fascination with the idea of making something from nothing. In this work, Lewis pushes the borders of choreography, giving space to the poetics of the performative moment.
