“Forgeries . . . recycles and filters the apocalyptic fantasies and clichés from movies and emo-culture. [It] is muggy and complex, defiant and humoristic and above all shameless theatre.” —De Morgen, Belgium
Are these people campers or drifters, friends or lovers, humans or animals? This intimate, tender, and at times brutal dance-theater work explores the psychological landscapes traversed in the search for personal connection. Atop a monumental hill (literally created onstage), three artists create a world that is part Beckett, part sci-fi, and part Darwin as they survey the geographies of the body, relationships, and the environment. An American expatriate powerhouse who has grown into one of the most influential choreographers of her generation in Europe, Meg Stuart returns briefly to the United States (Minneapolis and New York) to perform with Montréal dancer Benoît Lachambre and New York composer Hahn Rowe, whose stunning music performed live on the mountain envelops the audience. Note: Performance contains nudity.
