In Solos and duets, Golden Lion winner Meg Stuart and Damaged Goods offer you a unique insight into their work. Stuart, who made an international breakthrough during Klapstuk in Leuven, bundles some of her most unusual solos and duets into one show (Signs of Affection, In amável), including fragments from evening-filling performances (No One is Watching, Built to Last, UNTIL OUR HEARTS STOP). What starts as a risky dance piece with motorcycle helmets and stilts, ends in a playful duet that examines the borders of social contact and intimacy. Accompanied by electronics, percussion and a dark punk band, this performance evolves from melancholy to a sense of clarity. Solos and duets offers a spectrum from a controversial oeuvre, at once abstract and recognisable, modest and energetic, and that continues to grow, live and transform.
