At left, a portrait of the expatriate choreographer Meg Stuart who is visiting Los Angeles this week.
Her bravura solo, “Hunter” will be performed at REDCAT this weekend.
Many choreographers in Los Angeles will find Meg fascinating and real. I am personally very attracted by her distinctive brand of female brutalism — mixing raw emotion and vulnerability.
She creates mise-en-scenes of immense theatricality, employing video projection, rudimentary art objects and eerie soundtracks.
And she is an ace performer.
