Meg Stuart – Damaged Goods

Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods

In 1991, Klapstuk festival in Leuven (BE) presented Meg Stuart‘s work for the first time in Europe. The full-length new production Disfigure Study was highly acclaimed in Belgium and beyond. She presented her second piece, No Longer Readymade in 1993. It toured extensively and launched her artistic career. Inspired by the artistic climate in Belgium and interested in building her own structure, Stuart founded Damaged Goods in Brussels in 1994.

In her solo works, Meg Stuart continues to venture into the monologue of movement, exploring everyday movements and physical conditions through improvisation. Over the past few years, she created several solos including XXX for Arlene and Colleagues (1995), Soft Wear (2000) and Signs of Affection (2010). An evening of solo works presents a selection of former solo works, as well as excerpts from evening-length performances.

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 VIOLET, Meg Stuart turns to movement as its primary motor, pairing choreography with an alchemy of the senses. Perhaps the most abstract piece so far in her long standing career, VIOLET bears Stuart’s unique signature, an art that hones a frail ‘condition humaine’ in its intense physical emergence.
