A long history, two outstanding artists. Since 2016, Meg Stuart and Mark Tompkins have shared a passion for improvisation, as here in this real-time composition accompanied by musician Martin Siewert. Tompkins comments: “My passion for composition has always led me in two directions. Choreographies with long rehearsal periods, premieres and tours. Or improvised performances in which the composition is created in the moment of the act. Considered by many to be antagonistic, for me they are simply the two extremes of an interactive dialogue.” It will be exciting and touching at the same time, that much is certain.
