Bessie award-winning artist, director, and choreographer Ligia Lewis conceives and directs experimental performances throughout the US and Europe. Lewis’s works are often marked by physical and emotional intensities by which comedy and tragedy collide. Through her work, performer and audience alike confront a confluence of processes that disrupt normative conceptions of the body while she negotiates the ghostly traces of history, memory, and the un/known. In the fall, she opened her first solo exhibition, study now steady at CARA in NYC (US). A survey of her stage works was presented at HAU Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin, DE) in November 2023.
