About This Artist

Meg Stuart, born in New Orleans, is an American choreographer and dancer who lives and works in Berlin and Brussels. The daughter of theatre directors, she began dancing and acting at an early age in California and regularly performed in her parents’ productions and those made by family friends. She made her first dance studies as a teenager focusing on simple movement actions. Stuart decided to move to New York in 1983 and studied dance at New York University. She continued her training at Movement Research where she explored numerous release techniques and was actively involved in the downtown New York dance scene.

 

About This Project

“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 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 (2013) presents a selection of these former solo works, as well as excerpts from evening-length performances.

  • Figuring it Out: Inside She-Verse’s Narrative

    In 2006, I hosted my first audition for Cherie Hill IrieDance performers. I desired an all-black female cast. I yearned to deepen my self-knowledge of being a black woman making dance and to analytically understand how aesthetics relate to white and black culture. In 2014, I looked for something different. I sought movers who could […]

  • She-Verse Movement Essences

      She-verse embraces tenants of eco-feminism that speak to the parallels between oppression and domination of subordinate groups to the oppression and dominance of nature. How women are treated in misogynistic cultures relates to the abuse and rape of land experienced throughout the history of colonization and to the continued subordination of women and persons […]

  • Fake News and the Art of Unremembering

    Who here has heard of Singapore? Who here knows where it is? Who here knows anything about it?   I concede that answers to these questions might have changed since the popularity of the movie “Crazy Rich Asians”, but by and large, as a Singaporean living in the USA, I usually expect the response to […]
