the fault lines
Picture 6

Meg Stuart and Philipp Gehmacher are two celebrated choreographers, each with a very distinct style. While Stuart is known for her expressive imagery, Gehmacher’s work is more subdued. After their remarkable and fruitful cooperation in the duet MAYBE FOREVER, Stuart and Gehmacher collaborated again during the summer of 2008, on a research project for Sommerszene 08 in Salzburg. For this occasion they invited visual artist Vladimir Miller, residing in Berlin. The three artists were so inspired by their collaboration that they decided to develop the fault lines into a performance installation, which will had its world première during SPRINGDANCE 2010. In the fault lines two bodies and their vulnerability are the focal point. They manipulate each other and overlap.
