Costumes Jean-Paul Lespagnard
Inflamável arose as part of The Greatest Show on Earth (2016), a collaboration between the Hamburg Internationales Sommerfestival Kampnagel and Künstlerhaus Mousonturm (Frankfurt am Main). For this ‘21st-century performance-circus’, fourteen artists, including Meg Stuart, made a short performance.
In Inflamável, Meg Stuart collaborates with costume designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard and performers Vânia Rovisco and Márcio Kerber Canabarro, to create a performance that plays with images of fame, risk and vulnerability. Two bodies writhing through a desolate landscape; a duet on the border of pride and loss, success and decline, disillusionment and the lure of the unattainable.
