Production Details / Press Releases

„This single gesture of singing extended through time explodes its references to singing as such and creates a different kind of affect altogether. Over time a sculptural choreography takes form, what is left is an abstractly sensing body articulating a particular sensation of the sensational.“ L. M. Lewis

Ligia Manuela Lewis is a dance artist currently based in Berlin. She has performed/collaborated with the following: theater company Superamas (FR), dance company Les Ballets C de la B (BE), Christoph Winkler (DE), Martin Hansen (AU), Anat Eisenberg (IS/DE), Mirko Winkel (DE) and she continues on going collaborations with Lewis Forever (Berlin/NY) and Kat Valastur (GR/DE). She most recently began a collaboration with Jeremy Wade for his new creation. She was awarded the DanceWEB scholarship (AT) for 2010. Ligia is simultaneously working on a series of works which marry movement and sensation with the sensational – Sensation 1 is the first of these works.
