In Until Our Hearts Stop, six performers and three musicians find themselves in a place that is both a nightclub and an arena: an unreliable, high-octane refuge, a place of desire and illusion. To the sound of throbbing basses, piano and drums – a mix between improvisation and composition - they make optimistic attempts to meet impossible deadlines.

For this piece, Meg Stuart drew inspiration from people who retreat from the real world and construct their own, fantastic set of rules. The performers are ‘freaky insiders’, forced to connect in uncomfortable, yet playful ways. Navigating between naivety and despair, they are dreamers who long for reality. In a world in which they fade away and disappear, they feel the urge to seek new forms of appearance.
