Giving sound, lighting, and physical movement equal importance, Lewis’ affective choreographies trouble the site of the theater as well as the body as stable objects for stable meanings.


Through her use of color, embodiment, and dramaturgical unruliness, these symbols are twisted with playful abandon. In minor matter, sound travels across musical epochs to arrive at the poetics of the intimate present. Built on the logic of interdependence, the theater’s parts—light, sound, image, and architecture—become entangled with the three performers, giving life to a vibrant social and poetic space. In this work, Lewis turns to the color red, materializing thoughts between love and rage.  Resisting the tyranny of transparency and representationalism, Lewis suggests another space of becoming.
