Imagine a nomadic tribe would travel from the future to today’s time to share their lore – the stories, songs and dances that reflect their ways of living together, of practicing labour, care and ritual. Would we look at today’s world with different eyes? Would we be spurred on to sensitize ourselves and experiment with spaces and situations of encounter?

These questions are brought to resonate in Projecting [Space[, an in situ creation by Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods, dramaturge Jeroen Peeters and scenographer Jozef Wouters, made at the invitation of Ruhrtriennale 2017. A motley group of artists, performers and technicians, the company Damaged Goods set up camp in a former mining factory in Dinslaken-Lohberg (DE). There, they build a temporary environment prone to change, adaptation and migration. In real and imaginary spaces they unfold precarious collective practices of meeting and making – with living bodies, with tape and wood, with curated sounds and urban noise.
