In Built to Last Meg Stuart works for the first time with existing classical and contemporary music. The sound recording, a historical meta-composition by music dramaturge Alain Franco, acts as a time machine. Each of the tracks, by Sergei Rachmaninoff, Ludwig van Beethoven, Iannis Xenakis and Arnold Schönberg amongst others, reflects an overwhelming sense of monumentality. Five performers travel through the history of dance, and possibly into its future. Is it possible, today, to still believe in eternal values and universality, as things are built up only to fall down again?
