Description: FORGERIES, LOVE AND OTHER MATTERS is the result of a collaboration between the American choreographer and dancer Meg Stuart, the Canadian choreographer and dancer Benoît Lachambre and the American composer and musician Hahn Rowe. With roots in the East Village scene in New York of the mid 1980s, their pathways have been intersecting on numerous occasions such as in Meg Stuarts No Longer Readymade (1993) and in improvisational cooperative projects such as Crash Landing (1996-1999) and Not to Know (2002). Meg Stuart and Benoît Lachambre found each other again on the stage as dancing partners in a duet that is sonically enveloped by Hahn Rowes musical undulations.
FORGERIES, LOVE AND OTHER MATTERS reads as the title of a Woody Allen movie. The comedy of manners has, however, been transgenetically blended with the DNA of science fiction. Are these people on stage campers or drifters, friends or lovers, humans or animals? When grounds of existence are shifting and call for the curved terrains of possible utopias, hard-edged distinctions dissolve. Not unlike speleologists Meg Stuart and Benoît Lachambre explore the subterrestial landscapes of the body and of the inner and outer geographies of our relationships to one another and the environment.
