Last night FKA Twigs kicked off the first of three nights of her new performance “Congregata” -- a two-hour spectacle that brings to the stage her full vision as a dancer, choreographer and singer. The show is set in the Brooklyn Hangar down on the Sunset Park waterfront and was met the first night by a full house in near complete darkness under a thick haze of humidity.
Twigs goes between dancing alone and singing delicately and directly to the audience to circling and dominating male dancers who approach her under highly choreographed lighting and cybernetic percussion. It’s hard to take apart Congregata -- the music, the dancing, the costumes and production are all so tightly fused that it's almost impossible to focus on any one aspect outside of the whole. Twigs is a master at that.
