Congratulion: Factory Artist Ligia Lewis receives the Bessie Award 2017!

Wow! Congratulation to the choreographer Ligia Lewis, one of our current factory artist, who has received the renowned Bessie Award 2017 for “minor matter”! The award goes to this outstanding creation for “interrogating the social inscriptions on the black body within the frame of the black box. Moving with the logic of interdependence, three dancers push against the theater’s physical space transforming it into a visceral world pulsing with love and rage”. We are proud to present “minor matter“ on Fri 08.12. + Sat 09.12. 20:00. You'll find your tix HERE.
