Emotions have always played an important role in Ann Van den Broek's work. She dissects them and examines them meticulously for their impact, through the bodies of her dancers. What do emotions do with a movement, with a facial expression, a look in the eyes. Ann Van den Broek seeks control in the uncontrollable.
Loops of Emotions is a video installation of seven monitors set up in a space. The set-up is adapted to the location and therefore differs each time. Each monitor shows a dancer translating emotional experiences into movements and expressions. Are you overwhelmed by the movements on the seven monitors or do you focus on one dancer at the time? And how do you relate to the expressed emotions?
