Places were limited for this summer’s BA workshop with Meg Stuart and emotions were running high. Numerous fruitless attempts at discussion, Group Consensus Agreement, or a lottery system ended in tears and accusations: it proved impossible to decide who would be among the happy few in a fair and basis-democratic way. Who cared about democratic ideals when it was about proving who really deserved a Meg Stuart workshop? Who had what it takes, the stamina, the intensity, the brute strength?
There was only one way to find out: the down-and-dirty way, the rawest way contemporary dance has to offer…mudwrestling.
HZT dance students.
In the mud.
And this time, it’s about something.
