November 9 to 11



Five dancers reveal simultaneously and singularly an energetic landscape, a charged terrain of options. Their actions are manifestations of surging phenomena, imperceptible but always active. Violet is a steep descent into a maelstrom, a swirl of energetic patterns and kinetic sculptures full of detail, partnered live on stage by musician Brendan Dougherty on electronics and percussion. After a period of cross-breeding with other art forms and collaborations, Meg Stuart turns in VIOLET to movement as its primary motor, pairing choreography with an alchemy of the senses. Perhaps the most abstract piece so far in her long standing career, Violet bears Stuart’s unique signature, an art that hones a frail ‘condition humaine’ in its intense physical emergence.

US choreographer and dancer Meg Stuart, who’s based between Berlin and Brussels, has just received the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in recognition of her career; she’s been one of the leading figures in European contemporary dance since the end of the 1990s. This is an opportunity to see her in Barcelona, where she’s only performed once before and many years ago. Stuart founded her Damaged Goods company in Brussels in 1994, and has since created over 30 productions with it.
