Description

In this internationally acclaimed choreographic work, celebrated artist and choreographer Ligia Lewis, along with her incredible cast, Susanne Sachsse, Dani Brown and Titilayo Abedayo, use melodrama and an eerie tale by the Brothers Grimm as points of departure. Unfolding with playful inventiveness, a wet and cavernous landscape becomes host to a fiction that invites instability, recreation, and catastrophe. Wrestling with language and notions of “the will,” this dystopian fantasy becomes a space for negotiating desire, imagination, and feelings of an encroaching end. Lewis initiates a world in which voice, gesture, touch and movement flow like waves—both gentle and turbulent. Surrendering to the possibilities of the haptic, sense gets un-done to get re-done, paving the way for an “othered” organization of sight and touch. Water Will (in Melody) completes Lewis’s trilogy, preceded by minor matter in red (seen at REDCAT in January 2018) and Sorrow Swag in blue.
