Dance critics and historians have long argued that the American-born, Brussels-based dancer and choreographer Meg Stuart is one of the eminent artists of our time. She developed her signature style through evolving her training in contact improv and release technique, and now her oeuvre includes solos, group works, and installations. This week she arrives with a posse for a double-header, a retrospective of sorts that examines and celebrates her range and her influence. With the body—its vulnerability and its power—as her focus, Stuart performs an evening of solos and duets, and then moves to the gallery with Indonesian visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto for an incandescent evening the following week.
