Meg Stuart and Damaged Goods at the Walker Art Center
April 10, 2019
Born in New Orleans and educated in New York, choreographer and dancer Meg Stuart made a name for herself in Europe working in Berlin and Brussels. Now, as a part of Wunderbar Together, Stuart has brought her unique style of movement and dance back to the United States with a week of performances at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Stuart and her Brussels-based dance company, Damaged Goods, have worked with a number of artistic collaborators on two performances: An evening of solos and duets and Celestial Sorrow, hosted by the Goethe PopUp Minneapolis and the Goethe-Institut Chicago.
Celestial Sorrow is an immersive installation of light, movement and music performed by three performers and two musicians in which “Possession, implanted fictional traumas, imaginary and invisible spaces, and the voices that make them resonate are just some of the starting points for an adventurous leap into unknown territories.”
In An evening of solos and duets, Meg Stuart and Damaged Goods have created a presentation that encapsulates their 30 years of experience in dance and the influence it has had on contemporary performance. The performance 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.”
Stuart kicked off a week of performances with An evening of solos and duets on April 5 and 6. This week, the program will continue with Celestial Sorrow from April 11th to 13th. View times and tickets for the performances here.
