On the Boards Queen Anne
Recommended by Rich Smith
Witness the final act of a triptych from Ligia Lewis, a Dominican American choreographer based in Germany who earlier this year impressed the hell out of Seattle with the first two parts of that triptych, Sorrow Swag and minor matter. A reviewer for Bachtrack called Water Will (in Melody) "a gory fairy tale on human behaviors gone wild," and that's what all the press videos look like. Dancers, covered in black or clear vinyl, strewn across the floor like broken puppets and talking like records played backward, all while lighting tricks make them disappear and reappear. This is about as goth as contemporary dance gets.
