BLESSED - Several venues
ON TOUR » BLESSED
Ten years ago BLESSED had its premiere on Minard at Ghent, organized by the Kunstencentrum Vooruit. In 2017, celebrating the tenth anniversary, this solo played by Francisco Camacho, which carries on in the current repertoire of MEG STUART / DAMAGED GOODS & EIRA, will soon return to Ghent, Porto, Lisbon and will continue its extensive tour along other European cities.
The American choreographer and dancer Meg Stuart and the Portuguese choreographer and dancer Francisco Camacho met in New York in 89. He followed her to Belgium to dance in her debut work Disfigure Study. After that each went their own way but now they decided to collaborate once more. Meg Stuart has choreographed BLESSED, a new piece with Francisco Camacho in a sound design by Hahn Rowe and a set design by Doris Dziersk.
Co-produced by Damaged Goods and EIRA, BLESSED received in 2008 the French Critics Award for "Best Foreign Show" during its presentation on the Festival d'Automne (Paris). In 2012 it was awarded the New York Dance and Performance Award aka Bessie Award - Outstanding Visual Design 2012. In 2014, the Tanz - Zeitschrift für Ballett, Tanz und Performance magazine unanimously awarded the award for best choreographer to Meg Stuart.
