In June Ann Van den Broek will return to The Barbican (London) with artists Nicolas Rombouts, Frauke Mariën, Nik Rajšek, Gregory Frateur, An Hackselmans, Louis Combeaud as well as video and lighting designer Bernie van Velzen to present a performance installation from June 8 through 17. It is the first time that Ann will present such an installation in the United Kingdom. It’s inspired by the research she did while in residence at The Barbican in 2017 and is a follow-up to her participation in Doug Aitken’s Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening.

The installation performance called Loops of Behaviour will be presented in The Curve, the 60-meter-long curved exhibition space of The Barbican. The performance installation is divided into four different parts.

Loops of Emotions
In the installation in The Curve Ann will show new video footage and a series of films that focus on her exploration into emotional behavior and how that translates into movement.

Accusations, The Curve version
Once a day, five performers will present a new performance based on fragments from Accusations (2017). Four transmedial platforms are set up throughout the space and are manipulated live. This new creation takes visitors through the space.

Accusation Loops
Fragments from Accusations will be projected on several screen and simultaneously performed around them, creating a web of video, live performance and sound.

Accusation solos
In Accusation solos Ann and her performers dissect the intricate puzzle that became Accusations. The starting point is the personalities of the performers. Escape, control, to act or not to act, the fear that drives you or paralyzes you; in these solos each performer chooses his or her personal perspective to create a steady accumulation of movement, sound and words.

Ann: “I am very excited about my project in The Barbican. The very first time I set foot in The Curve, I fell in love with the space. I especially adore the fact that, depending on the exhibit we put on display, you have no idea where it will all ends. It feels like entering another world, in which you lose time and space. Standing in The Curve I immediately got excited about adapting the original version of Accusations to the space. I hope that the people who walk in there will feel and experience things that causes them to walk out feeling quite different.”

Loops of Behaviour opens in The Curve on Friday, June 8, 2018. More information about the opening times on the website of The Barbican.
