Meg Stuart: A Refracted Portrait

Meg Stuart, one of the world’s most influential and acclaimed contemporary choreographers—and recipient of the 2018 Venice Biennale Golden Lion for Dance Lifetime Achievement—returns to the Walker for the first time since 2006 for a rare US appearance. The American-born, Berlin/Brussels-based artist continually invents new presentation contexts and movement languages in collaboration with artists from diverse disciplines. This multipart engagement includes the North American premiere of Celestial Sorrow, a Walker co-commissioned  immersive installation and performance made with visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto, along with An evening of solos and duets, a stunning retrospective offering a glimpse into an oeuvre that continues to live, grow, and transform.
