FORGERIES, LOVE AND OTHER MATTERS

Autorenschaft
Beschreibung

FORGERIES, LOVE AND OTHER MATTERS ist the result of a collaboration between the American choreographer and dancer Meg Stuart, the Canadian choreographer and dancer Benoît Lachambre and the American Composer and musician Hahn Rowe. With roots in the East Village scene in New York of the mid 1980s, their pathways have been intersecting on numerous occasions such as in Meg Stuart´s No Longer Readymade (1993) and in improvisational kooperative projects such as Crash Landing (1996-1999) and Not To Know (2002). Now Meg Stuart and Benoît Lachambre find each other again on the stage as dancing partners in a duet that is sonically enveloped by Hahn Rowe´s musical undulations.


ENGLISH:

FORGERIES, LOVE AND OTHER MATTERS reads as the title of a Woody Allen movie. The comedy of manners has, however, been transgenetically blended with the DANN of science fiction. Are these people on stage campers or drifters, friends or lovers, humans or animals? When grounds of existence are shifting and call fort he curved terrains of possible utopias, hard-edged distinctions dissolve. Not unlike speleologists Meg Stuart and Benoît Lachambre explore the subterrestial landscapes of the body and of the inner and outer geographies of our relationships to one another and the environment.
