Meg Stuart / Damaged Goods

Hunter

Dance

English / 90 min

“How can I digest the many influences and traces that shaped me as a person and artist? How can my body unfold quantum genealogies and unrealized histories?” In her first evening-length solo Hunter, choreographer Meg Stuart explores her own body as an archive populated with personal and cultural memories, ancestors and artistic heroes, fantasies and invisible forces. Discovering traces in the land of small things that linger around her body, Stuart translates them into a series of self-portraits. Experiences are cut up and spliced together on the editing table to reveal potential connections and forms, such as a cartoonesque body, a shamanist chanting ritual, or a noisy sound sculpture. Stretched onto different surfaces and ricocheting across media, interior states refract and resonate in a shared world.
