UNTIL OUR HEARTS STOP: Interview with Choreographer Meg Stuart


Renowned US choreographer and Berlin resident Meg Stuart describes UNTIL OUR HEARTS STOP as a play on intimacy, touch and magic. Stuart drew inspiration from people who retreat from the real world and construct their own fantastic set of rules. In creating the piece, a lot of time was spent working with all variations of touch, including contact improv and tantra. Fueling the performance is a live jazz trio.

Performances on October 18, 20, 21 and 22 at Hebbel am Ufer (HAU)
