Meg Stuart is an American choreographer and dancer, born in New Orleans, living and working in Berlin (D) and Brussels (B).
Together with her Brussels-based company Damaged Goods she has created over thirty productions, ranging from solos to large-scale choreographies. Other projects include video works, installations and site-specific creations. Her work has toured the international theatre circuit and was presented at Documenta X in Kassel (1997), at Manifesta7 in Bolzano (2008) and at PERFORMA09 in New York.
Stuart strives to develop a new language for every piece in collaboration with artists from different creative disciplines and navigates the tension between dance, theatre and visual arts. Previous collaborations include works developed with visual artists Gary Hill, Ann Hamilton, Vladimir Miller and Jozef Wouters, amongst others. Scenography and the visual possibilities of the theatre as a space of fiction and ‘magic’, play an important role in many of her pieces. Also in her improvisation projects, such as Crash Landing, Auf den Tisch! or City Lights – a continuous gathering (2016), performers often share the stage with musicians, video artists and visual artists.
Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods has an ongoing collaboration with Kaaitheater (Brussels) and HAU Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin).
