“Sorrow Swag” is the first part of Ligia Lewis’ triptych that deals with affect and embodiment, as well as race and representation.
Using texts and images derived from mid 20th-century classical theatre to interrogate race, authorship, gender, and grief, it produces an imaginative reformulation.
Thinking through the blues, this work disrupts the canonical by means of a radical othering. With music by Twin Shadow, Lewis and a performer create a hybrid body in a state of flux.
