walk+talk #16

How do dancers and choreographers talk about their work?

In 2008 Philipp Gehmacher invited ten choreographers, including Meg Stuart, to talk about their language of movement on a large empty stage in a Viennese theatre. The result was a surprising multiplicity of voices and stories: every solo testified to a unique view of the body, movement and the confrontation with space.

In 2011 Gehmacher compiled another series for Kaaitheater, comprising existing solos and newly commissioned work. Each evening there were two dancers or choreographers on the programme. Meg Stuart performed on March 17.
