"A beautiful, blistering trio…“minor matter” tapped into a place of generous and generative rage." - New York Times
"Lewis’s work offers a kind of oblique blueprint for how joy, hope, anger, and despair are all always the case, using the paradigmatic fact of blackness." - 4Columns
Presented as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA
Dominican-born and Berlin-based choreographer Ligia Lewis and performers Jonathan Gonzalez and Tiran Willemse engage in a complicated entanglement with the black box and themselves. Between light and shadow, reference and imagination, affect and embodiment, questions of re-presentation, presentation, abstraction and the limits of signification emerge. In minor matter, sound travels across musical epochs to arrive at the poetics of the intimate present. Through a dynamic interplay of the theater's parts —sound, light, image, and architecture—minor matter gives life to a vibrant materiality.
