Meg Stuart: Hunter

Meg Stuart: Hunter

"There aren’t many stars in contemporary dance, but Meg Stuart is one: she shines bright. Stuart explores the tension between dance and theater with an exquisite nonchalance. - Gia Kourlas, 4Columns: arts criticism weekly

Meg Stuart named "Choreographer of the Year" by Germany's Tanz Magazine for HUNTER 

Presented in association with the Goethe-Institut as part of the Sharon Lund Disney Dance Series.

Hunter (2014) - Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods (Trailer) from Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods on Vimeo.

Staged within an exquisite installation created with video, scenography and light, choreographer Meg Stuart’s acclaimed solo Hunter explores her own body as an archive populated with personal and cultural memories, ancestors and artistic heroes, fantasies and invisible forces. Discovering traces in the land of small things that linger around her body, Stuart translates them into a series of self-portraits. Experiences are cut up and spliced together on the editing table to reveal potential connections and forms, such as a cartoonesque body, a shamanist chanting ritual or a noisy sound sculpture.


Hunter premiered in March 2014 and has been featured in prominent spaces such as the Venice Biennial in Italy, The Pompidou Center in Paris, and the Geneva Festival in Switzerland.



Presented with support from the Getting To Know Europe program awarded by the Delegation of the European Union to the United States.
