a co-production with TsEKh (RU) and Balet Moskva (RU)
In Russian, Kamepa is pronounced ‘camera’, though it means ‘cell’. Ann Van den Broek was invited by dance organisation TsEKh in Moscow to create a performance.
She took her powerful minimalistic movement style to Russia and made a new piece with seven dancers. A Russian guitarist, coached by composer Arne van Dongen, accompanies the performance. The seven dancers are locked up; a sense of oppression is never far away. At the same time they feel watched, as if a camera is recording their every move. Something is brewing. The abstract movements seem commonplace and vice versa, but the restrained emotions seep out on all sides. Daring, vulnerable, and compelling.
