The final night of the BMW Tate Live Exhibition hosts the UK premiere of choreographer Ligia Lewis’ minor matter.

With this powerful trio Lewis asks whether the black box can be host to a black experience that goes beyond identity politics? Through a rich materiality of the body and complex entanglements, minor matter opens up a vital celebratory space where ingrained symbols of the body are twisted by the intimate poetics of the performative moment.

Artist and writer, Emily Roysdon presents a site specific durational performance, part of an ongoing project based on her text Uncounted which explores ‘aliveness’ as a marginal structure ‘to be alive inside.’

Isabel Lewis hosts an ‘Occasion’ bringing music, dance, food and drink to the Tanks galleries. For the duration of the exhibition, Lewis is in residence in the foyer of the Tanks transforming the subterranean space into a platform for conversation, contemplation, and dancing.
