VIOLET

Part of “There is no time for this”

Dance

80 min.

Five dancers reveal simultaneously and singularly an energetic landscape, a charged terrain of options. Their actions are manifestations of surging phenomena, imperceptible but always active. VIOLET is a steep descent into a maelstrom, a swirl of energetic patterns and kinetic sculptures full of detail, partnered live on stage by musician BrendanDougherty on electronics and percussion. After a period of cross-breeding with other art forms and collaborations, MegStuart turns in VIOLET to movement as its primary motor, pairing choreography with an alchemy of the senses. Perhaps the most abstract piece so far in her long standing career, VIOLET bears Stuart’s unique signature, an art that hones a frail ‘condition humaine’ in its intense physical emergence.
