Signs of Affection

Signs of Affection was created in 2010 within the frame of the ArtCena festival in Rio de Janeiro (curated by Andre Lepecki and Eleonora Fabiao). After spending time in a studio to research material and while getting impressions of the city, Meg Stuart made this short solo as an act of erasure and devotion.

In a powerful blur of emotions, the intensity of the movements get framed to the hands and the head. An explosive drum solo partners the performance which fades out in a series of sensorial sculptures and a resonating silence.
