MEG STUART & jompet kuswidananto



18 JAN'18


01 FEB'18

Upon the invitation of the EUROPALIA INDONESIA festival, Meg Stuart and visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto, together with three performers and two musicians, embark on an exploratory journey into possession and implanted fictional traumas. Imaginary and invisible spaces, and the voices that make them resonate, are just some of the starting points for an adventurous leap into unknown territories.

Celestial Sorrow is commissioned by the Walker Art Center with support provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the William and Nadine McGuire Commissioning Fund.
