Meg Stuart: An evening of solo works (US PREMIERE)
Co-Presented with Goethe-Institut and The Federal Foreign Office of Germany
“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
In her solo works, Meg Stuart ventures into the monologue of movement, exploring everyday gestures, physical conditions and emotional states through improvisation. An evening of solo works presents a selection of Stuart’s body of solo works including XXX for Arlene and Colleagues (1995) and Signs of Affection (2010), as well as excerpts from evening-length performances. The evening offers an intimate and telling exposure to an American ex-pat, critically acclaimed overseas and rarely seen in the US.
An evening of solo works is produced by Damaged Goods (Brussels). Meg Stuart & Damaged Goods are supported by the Flemish Government and the Flemish Community Commission. Performances of An evening of solo works for American Realness 2017 are presented in collaboration with, and generously supported by the Goethe-Institut and the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.
Run Time: 60 minutes
