Meg Stuart (born 1965 in New Orleans) is an American choreographer
living and working in Brussels, where she founded her dance company Damaged Goods, and Berlin. She makes performances for theaters and film, as well as for intimate settings and diverse spaces such as industrial warehouses and urban rooftops. Her choreographic work expresses a vision of human corporality that embraces flaws and encompasses people's drive to overcome boundaries of many kinds. As a teacher and curator, she creates collective spaces where artists can gather, reflect and form alliances. Not resting on past achievements, Meg Stuart incessantly strives to explore new artistic ways, working in close collaboration with performers, musicians, visual artists and authors. Increasingly, her interest in strategies of transcendence, voicing techniques and healing practices comes to surface in her creations. She has been recognized with the Bessie Award (2008, New York, USA), the Grand Prix de la Danse de Montréal (2014, Canada), the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement (2018, Venice, Italy) and other awards.
