In Lewis Forever: Freak the Room detours and short-cuts become opportunities for fantasy, for violence, for the expression of angst and dissatisfaction, and for tenderness.
LEWIS FOREVER is George Lewis Jr., Isabel Lewis, Ligia Manuela Lewis, and Sarah Lewis - an Brooklyn and Berlin based family performance collective comprised of four siblings, all of whom are artists who have been working independently in their artistic circles for several years. They now come together to create performance installations and performance parties that utilize music, dance and video. These events provide opportunities to embody ideas and questions surrounding collective versus individual vision, emigration, post-American identity, transient identities, "trans-nationalism," belonging, longing, and dislocation.
George Jr. is a performance artist/musician based in Brooklyn who blends Rock n Roll, theatre, and visual art in his work as an artist jack of all trades; also based in Brooklyn is Isabel, a dance artist and curator. On the Berlin-based side of the family, there is Ligia Manuela Lewis and Sarah Lewis. Ligia Manuela has worked with esteemed dance artists including Tere O Connor, David Dorfman, Gisele Mason, and the Superamas. Sarah has worked with Todd Fletcher choreographing original musicals "William Tell" and "Streets of Wedding," and presented two plays at the English Theatre of Berlin.
