Accusation solos Événement / Journées du Patrimoine

Time scale 4h00
Enfants / Ados
The : Sunday 17 September 2017 from 13h00 to 17h00

Accusation solos are structured around one performer and are based on material from the production Accusations, only unraveled and reassembled again. Significance, reflection, accusation or complaint. Succeeding or failing, grasping opportunities or passing on them, unrealized desires; each performer chooses his or her own perspective in a confrontational quest to find a better version of him- or herself.

Belgian choreographer Ann Van den Broek works on the cutting edge of several disciplines. Dance, performance, song, music, soundscape, texts and film come together to create a powerful total experience. Not only does Van den Broek explore and extend the parameters of dance on stage, but of theater as well. Site-specific versions of The Black Piece, for instance, were performed in museums such as the Barbican Art Gallery in London (UK) and in the MHKA museum in Antwerp (BE). And with director Mike Figgis, she made a film version of Co(te)lette.

In June, Accusations had its French premiere in Paris during the Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis. And on September 17, the Accusation solos will be performed in the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris during the Journées européennes du patrimoine (European Heritage Days).

WArd/waRD – Ann Van den Broek

Since 2000, Ann Van den Broek [Antwerp (BE), 1970] has made over twenty choreographies and a film for and with her company Ward/waRD (BE/NL). Her work has been nominated several times for the Zwaan (Swan), the most prestigious dance prize in the Netherlands, and again this year for her latest work: Accusations. She was awarded the prize twice: for Co(te)lette (2008) and The Black Piece (2015). The Co(te)lette Film won several international prizes.

In 2010, Ann received the Mousson Award, an initiative of Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt (D). In 2015, the book about her work, protect/perform, was published and filmmaker Lisa Boerstra made the documentary The Lady in Black.
