Francisco Camacho

Meg Stuart

In CASCADE, Meg Stuart and seven dancers look for ways to resist the arrow of time. Meeting in structures of rhythmic complexity, they propel their bodies and imaginations into a new temporal space, envisioning a new earth and rebalancing inevitable outcomes.

In a game of refusal and care, disruption becomes a driving force: rushes and falls succeed one another, bodies lose their bearings, principles are repeated, interrupted and transformed. Hovering at the edge of uncertainty, the dancers wonder what kind of dream they need to give up in order to keep dreaming, what kind of body they need to acquire to keep going. CASCADE is a surrender to what we don’t know about the other. A free fall to the crumbling of time.
