About Annika...

“At last it was Annika B. Lewis’ turn to catch the audience, which she did with excellence… Beyond that the audience were involved in the act, Annika B. Lewis managed to catch the audience’ attention with a vivid personality topped with a stain of humour. The whole hall were filled with laughter and a dazzling excitement for, what her next move could be.”
– Terpsichore, about Let's Get Personal 2010

"Annika B. Lewis bills her one-woman show, “Let’s Get Personal,” as “an absurd report from the happiest country in the world, with a personal commentary ranging somewhere between blind angles and clear views.” Although this country does not exist, Miss Lewis‘ description of it closely resembles the United States, where success comes from a carefully calculated fusion of self-help, self-promotion and self-deception. Miss Lewis stars as an insanely chipper productivity expert who, in between politically charged monologues, leads the audience in satirical breathing exercises designed to help them reach their truer, deeper selves (which are, in the end, as gullible as their falser, shallower selves). With its emphasis on programming people to be orderly and efficient in their personal and professional lives, and its reference to “Newspeak,” “Let’s Get Personal” is a darkly funny riff on George Orwell’s “1984.”
