"How to translate sensations and inner monologues into movement? Is it possible to track the hesitation before speaking, the movements not chosen, the spaces we travel to when we are daydreaming, the memories and projections that cloud our awareness of the present?" - Meg Stuart

Meg Stuart is an American choreographer and dancer, working and living in Berlin (D) and Brussels (B). She founded her own company, Damaged Goods, in Brussels through which she has realized over 30 productions, ranging from solos to large-scale choreographies, site-specific creations and improvisation projects.

Stuart strives to develop a new language for every piece in collaboration with artists from different creative disciplines and navigates the tension between dance and theatre. Her work revolves around the idea of an uncertain body, one that is vulnerable and self-reflexive. It is analogous to a constantly shifting identity and constantly redefines itself while searching for new presentation contexts and territories for dance. 

Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods  has an on-going collaboration with Kaaitheater (Brussels) and HAU Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin).

 

The Keir Choreographic Award Dancehouse Public Program is presented by Dancehouse in partnership with Faculty of the VCA and MCM | University of Melbourne, Abbotsford Convent, Lucy Guerin Inc., BalletLab and Temperance Hall, City of Yarra, Critical Path, Goethe-Institut Australia.
