The moment when language fails and gestures lose their meaning. The limits of communication, the failure of expression: By exhibiting the masks, fictions and wishes of the human soul, American choreographer Meg Stuart reminds us of our vulnerability.
But as much as Stuart focuses on the failure of dialogue and collaboration, her work is characterised by the yearning for their possibility, by the will to compress time, to rewrite ones history, to live in many bodies at once, to fully experience the pain of another, to embrace emptiness, to show all perspectives of a complex situation in a single gesture.
For the first time since her legendary site-specific Highway 101 project, Stuart is developing a new piece for a non-theatre space together with her company for steirischer herbst. She takes the big empty Helmut-List-Halle as a challenge for a performance installation with a limited number of spectators: What she is developing under the working title Project.08 up to the moment of the première in Graz is an evening of dance set between celebration and crisis, full of fleeting links, unrequested gifts, and little miracles.
