Ligia Lewis

Still Not Still

Tanzplattform Deutschland 2022,,

A long-winded lament. A comic tragedy unfolds in Ligia Lewis's latest stage work. With a unique theatrical language full of dark humor and surrealist imagery, darkness is invoked as a place of imaginative potential. Historiography's exclusion of black and non-Western subjects is leveraged through the choreography, performed in the form of a musical complainte. "Still Not Still" disrupts any fantasy of historical progress and conceives a world out of time, a world at a standstill.
