Facts are simply perceptions and surfaces.
You go round and round fall on the ground.
What is the condition of bad fait(h).
What is deader than dead?
Still Not Still is a choreography for seven performers, a composition that emerges out of the dark space that is history for black and non-Western subjects. In response to this exclusion from the past, Lewis leverages darkness as a site for critical imaging and imagining. She makes use of the early musical form of a “complainte” – a prolonged lament or musical poem. Through the confluence of comedy and tragedy, Lewis evokes with poetic and comedic force a unique theatrical language full of dark humor and surrealist imagery, disrupting any fantasy of historical progress. Thus, Lewis imagines a world out of time, a world at a standstill.
Ligia Lewis is a Berlin based choreographer and dancer. She has previously visited Black Box teater with minor matter. During the festival this year her film deader than dead is also presented.
