Sarah Lewis is a Dominican-American cultural producer based in Berlin. She has created, curated and led a variety of performing art projects in cities like Boston, Berlin, Chicago, NYC, Brussels, Santo Domingo, Paris, Riga, Basel and São Paulo working in an array of different cultural venues, from theaters to galleries, public spaces, warehouses, schools and museums.
Sarah has researched and worked with collaborative art practices as a member of the art collective LEWIS FOREVER (which presented work amongst other places at ps122 and the New Museum in NYC), independently with SOIT in Brussels, Agora in Berlin, for the City of Chicago’s On Edge Festival, and also recently hosted a performative workshop at Centro Huartes in Pamplona, Spain which explored artistic collaboration and the potentialities of building an ecology of attention.
Combining her artistic practices Sarah has come to play the role of a host concentrating on knowledge dissemination through theatrical forms. By assembling materials and facilitating situations that attempt to level out hierarchies of knowledge, a platform is created where the focus is rather on knowledge interdependence– after all, we are all cultural producers.
Sarah received her Master of Fine Arts at the University of Arts Berlin in the “Art in Context” program and has been working with Mobile Academy Berlin and Agora Collective since 2013.
