Imagine a nomadic tribe would travel from the future to today’s time to share their lore – the stories, songs and dances that reflect their ways of living together, of practicing labour, care and ritual. Would we look at today’s world with different eyes? Would we be spurred on to sensitize ourselves and experiment with spaces and situations of encounter?
These questions are brought to resonate in Projecting [Space[, an in situ creation by Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods, dramaturge Jeroen Peeters and scenographer Jozef Wouters. The project took place for the first time during Ruhrtriennale 2017, where the artists of Damaged Goods had set up camp in a former mining factory in the Ruhr area. In 2018 the project relocated to the Reinbeckhallen in Berlin Schöneweide (presented by HAU Hebbel am Ufer), where the company unfolded precarious collective practices of meeting and making.
