Choreographer and dancer Meg Stuart’s practice is an atlas of emotions. Each choreographic work charts a new territory. Movement that play out shifting affective and physical states. Bodies come together in ecstatic moments of connection and alienation; tensions are build and released; momentums are followed and fractured. Made through a process of improvisation with an ever-evolving community of collaborators, movement rather than dance describes best her medium.
Meg follows her restless lust for exploring the mysterious depths of human experience and relations. Her agility is reflected in the trajectory of cities through which she has passed—born in New Orleans, raised in Los Angeles, and trained in New York, it was in Leuven that Meg found critical acclaim in the early-nineties; today she splits her residence town Berlin and Brussels with the company Damaged Goods she founded.
