“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

With a focus on the body as a vulnerable, uncertain presence, Meg Stuart and her company Damaged Goods reconfigure 30 years of evocative dance in a presentation that encapsulates their profound influence on contemporary performance. The evening will revisit both the past and the present, combining a selection of solo works and duets with excerpts from evening-length performances, giving a unique look into an oeuvre that keeps growing and transforming. For this evening, Meg Stuart works together with regular Damaged Goods-performers Maria F. Scaroni and Claire Vivianne Sobottke, and live musicians Brendan Dougherty and Mike Michel.
