For the Ruhrtriennale 2020, Meg Stuart has developed her first ensemble work for the stage since 2015 together with her company Damaged Goods. This new production marks her first collaboration with the unconventional stage designer and theatre maker Philippe Quesne, who is internationally renowned for his quirky and imaginative as well as atmospherically intensive stage creations.

Time, its duration, repetition and our awareness of its passing are often significant elements of Meg Stuart’s choreographic works. In ›CASCADE‹ seven performers search for and measure time in their own playful way, accompanied by the live music of Brendan Dougherty.

Meg Stuart is one of the most significant and exciting choreographers of the present day. Her works shift between dance and theatre, movement and narrative. She is constantly redefining her own artistic method, seeking to transpose choreographic ideas into other fields. In recognition of her life’s work Meg Stuart was awarded the Golden Lion at the 2018 Venice Biennale.
