Lee Méir - crying creatures crying

Tijdens deze residentie in STUK werken choreograaf Lee Méir, Loïc Iten (podium), Eli Cohen (choreografisch assistent) en Jana Sotzko (muziek) aan Méirs nieuwe solo crying creatures crying, die in première gaat in Uferstudios Berlin in mei 2024.

Over crying creatures crying:

In een zeer nonsensicale choreografie houden figuren uit onze hoop en wanhoop de wereld rondom ons een spiegel voor. In haar nieuwe solo crying creatures crying duikt choreograaf Lee Méir in de fantasierijke en emotionele grootsheid van dans en de bijhorende symboliek en interpretatieve codes - wie ziet wat, waar en waarom. Het publiek wordt uitgenodigd om te schipperen tussen ongemerkte onmiddellijkheid en complete ambiguïteit in een droomwereld van kinesthetische verbondenheid.

Lee Méir is a Berlin based choreographer and performer. At the core of her work lies an on-going search for how we make sense out of things, investigated by exploring the interplay between chaos and order, as well as randomness and control. Her pieces are presented internationally and vary from solos to collective formats, all grounded in her perspective of art as a nexus of ideas, people and craftsmanship. Méir is a 2019 recipient of the Pina Bausch Fellowship in cooperation with L’Ecole des Sables in Senegal. Some of her recent work includes safe&sound (2021/2023) an ensemble stage piece delving into rhythm and togetherness (HAU / Radialsystem), and by the way (2021), a participatory performance about death for young audiences (fabrik Potsdam, explore dance network). Recently, Uferstudios Berlin selected Méir to be part of the European Network Project Life Long Burning's Creative Crossroads program. As part of this project she will premiere her new solo at Uferstudios in May 2024.
