Ann Van den Broek experiments with live video footage and sound and lighting effects in The Balancing Act.
Roles between dancer and musician blur and mix as we see more often in her work. With music pedals, the performers manipulate sound, light and image. Looking for the right volume, the right sharpness or a beautiful light in which life can be enjoyed.
For The Balancing Act, Ann Van den Broek has once again studied and researched the human body in detail. The body as scales. Everything works together. Every joint, every muscle. Just to keep from falling. Besides this physical balance, Van den Broek draws inspiration for The Balancing Act from our daily pursuit of a balanced life.
