About this show

In Isabel Lewis' premiere evening-length solo show she resurrects her depiction of Mr. T and uses him and a few other icons as the unexpected reference points of a discussion by way of performance about the nature of performance itself. Equipped with the contents of a duffel bag Lewis builds a kind of mental map throughout the course of the performance inside of which postulates. Drawing on a range of references from Roland Barthes to B.A. Baracus, Lewis weaves a circuitous narrative about altered states, imagination, connectivity, process, and fiction.
