Since choreographer Meg Stuart presented her debut Disfigure study at the Klapstuk festival (Louvain) in 1991 and founded her company Damaged Goods in Brussels in 1994, she has been a regular guest in theatres all over Europe and became a key figure in contemporary dance. In the artist’s book Are we here yet?, Stuart reflects on her own practice in dialogue with Jeroen Peeters and several (former) Damaged Goods collaborators. It includes essays by Myriam Van Imschoot and André Lepecki, and visual contributions by Doris Dziersk, Tina Kloempken, Jorge Léon and Anna Viebrock, among others.
