The Los Angeles engagement of WATER WILL (IN MELODY)—part three of the acclaimed trilogy by Ligia Lewis, created with performers Susanne Sachsse, Dani Brown, and Titilayo Adebayo—is at Redcat this week for three evening shows and a Sunday matinee.
“In WATER WILL, light is more hypnotic, fantastical. The unsettling qualities emerge out of different choreographic proposals that always include sound and light. I like when something familiar suddenly touches upon the uncanny, or a series of activities or movements is interrupted, or sonic and visual shiftiness disrupts the flow of things and creates a hiccup in perception.
“I indulge in nonlinear thinking and allow myself to riff or go in multiple directions in a piece. This lends itself to going sideways versus straight forward. I’m an intense reader of my own work, but not in an analytical sense. It’s an intuitive process.” — Ligia Lewis
