"minor matter" by Ligia Lewis

Event Type
Event Description

Berlin-based choreographer Ligia Lewis uses dance, visual arts and the theater to pose questions concerning otherness and empathy in this second installment of a racially-conscious trilogy. Three performers build on minor aesthetics through a dynamic merger of the theater's parts; ultimately negotiating themselves in relation to visual and phonic play. In a time of anti-blackness, minor matter saturates the black box space with the elusiveness of black expression. 

The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) presents the fourth annual OnEdge, the experimental live performance series, February 23–March 25, 2016.  The FREE admission series will feature Chicago and world premieres from national and international artists.
