Annexe (2001)

Annexe is a dance solo with a pianist. The solo is based on four solos for four different women/characters that first appeared in the performance Almost Not Now which Van den Broek made for studio Arabesque from Antwerp. In Annexe, the four solos and the four characters are melded into one woman. The pianist accompanies the woman in her efforts to delineate her personality.

“Ann Van den Broek’s solo sticks out because of the personal commitment of the dancer/choreographer and especially her stage personality. Bursts of compressed energy peak when she whirls around the stage like a tornado.”
