Minor Matter is a beautiful, blistering trio. New York Times
In Minor Matter, a performance for three dancers, two discursive apparatuses are at play: blackness and the black box. Ligia Lewis turns to the color red to materialize thoughts between love and rage. The work unfolds multi-directionally creating a poetics of dissonance from which questions of re-presentation, presentation, abstraction, and the limits of signification emerge. Throughout the choreography the performers push their bodies against the boundaries of the stage while simultaneously illustrating a humble relationship between their bodies and the space that encapsulates it. The performers get exhausted as their bodies strip the stage of its formal mystique to approach its matter: black.
In Minor Matter, sound travels across musical epochs to arrive at the poetics of the intimate present. Built on the logic of interdependence, the theatre’s parts — light, sound, image, and architecture — become entangled with the three performers, giving life to a vibrant social and poetic space. Minor Matter is the second part of the trilogy (BLUE, RED, WHITE) performed by three dancers.
