Meg Stuart

Meg Stuart is a choreographer and dancer living and working and Berlin. After her studies in New York City she created on the invitation of the Klapstuk festival in Leuven her first evening-length piece "Disfigure Study", which launched her choreographic career in Europe. Stuart founded her own company Damaged Goods in 1994 and made Brussels her artistic home. Together they created more than thirty productions, ranging from solos to large-scale choreographies and including site-specific creations and installations. Over the years she initiated and participated in several improvisations projects.

She collaborated with many artists, including Pierre Coulibeuf, Philipp Gehmacher, Ann Hamilton, Gary Hill, Benoît Lachambre, Jorge León and Hahn Rowe. Residencies in Schauspielhaus Zürich (2000–04) and Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz Berlin (2005-10) led to collaborations with theatre directors Stefan Pucher, Christoph Marthaler and Frank Castorf. Since 2010 Damaged Goods initiated a new collaboration with Münchner Kammerspiele.

Her work has travelled a wide international theatre circuit and has also been presented at Documenta X (1997) in Kassel and at Manifesta7 (2008) in Bolzano. In 2008 Meg Stuart received a Bessie Award for her body of work and a Flemish Culture Award in the category performing arts. The Akademie der Künste awarded Meg Stuart the Konrad-Wolf-Preis in 2012. In 2015 she came back to HAU with "Hunter" and "VIOLET", in 2016 "City Lights - a continuous gathering #1-5" could be seen at HAU. 2017 she will be back with "Shown and Told" (together with Tim Etchells) and a re-run ofvon “VIOELT“.
