Meg Stuart / Damaged Goods VIOLET
VIOLET is probably one of Meg Stuart’s most abstract works, revolving around notions of adaptation, regeneration and fate. The five dancers embark on an intense, physical journey, similar to a drug-induced hallucination, and explore art’s power of transformation. The sound of drums and electronic music, interpreted on stage, accompanies the dancers.
