An Occasion Hosted by Isabel Lewis

Considered a celebratory and sensory gathering of things, people, plants, music, dance and smells, the ‘occasion’ - a term coined by Isabel Lewis - is a social meeting place that situates itself somewhere between a bar, a lecture and a salon. The evening will offer a space for relaxation and well-being where all of the senses are engaged, with Lewis’ dramaturgy including speaking, DJing, dancing, and scents by Norwegian chemist and researcher Sissel Tolaas.

Visitors will be welcomed with a drink and a small offering of something light to eat provided by Toxteth-based creative collective Squash Nutrition.

Doors open at 7pm. Guests can come at any time and stay as long as they please.

Isabel Lewis is an artist of Dominican and American origin currently working in Berlin. Isabel used to live in New York City where she danced for many choreographers and has shown her own commissioned works from 2004 at The Kitchen, Dance Theater Workshop, New Museum and Movement Research at Judson Church amongst others. In 2009 she moved to Berlin and began working on a collection of notes that would become her solo show entitled STRANGE ACTION. Isabel draws from her training in literary criticism, dance, and choreography as well as from party and popular culture.
