Damaged Goods & EIRA
Meg Stuart's credo is the fragmented, twisted and exposed human body. She made her choreographic debut with Disfigure Study at the Belgium Klapstukfestival in 1991. The production had an unprecedented influence on the dance and performance aesthetics of the nineties and established her own highly personal dance idiom in which the mind and body are often shown in extreme, occasionally contradictory, capacities. Stuart’s work is rooted in New York in the 1980s, where she also first met the Portuguese dancer Francisco Comacho. Comacho later worked with her in Brussels and also participated in creations by Alain Platel and Carlota Lagido, made his own choreographic pieces and founded the EIRA company. In 2007 Meg Stuart created BLESSED a new choreography for Camacho in a sound setting by Hahn Rowe.
