LEWIS FOREVER


LEWIS FOREVER is a performance collective of four siblings: three sisters and a brother, a director, two dancers and a musician. LF is a family living half in New York and half in Berlin, half Dominican and half Jewish American, a performance collective and a bloodline.

LF makes new performance work for both theatrical and non-theatrical spaces always exploring new performance formats as well as new methods for collaboration. Taking on the configuration of a collective LF proposes a new model for the family structure reconfiguring traditional notions. Family being the first society we acclimate to and the way we begin to understand the organization of our communities, we are interested in the family structure as a site for recasting the molds that shape our understandings of the world. LF is the taproot from which stem the various incarnations of our work.

LF is comprised of artists Ligia, George Jr., Isabel, and Sarah Lewis and has been presented and supported by PS 122, Harlem Stage, New Museum and Dance New Amsterdam in New York and by various galleries and performance venues in Berlin, Germany.
