Q61 (2011)

Q61

 
Six individuals wandering in a restricted, safe space. Forever immersed in their helix of emotions. Pain, lust, aggression, fear, desire and love. Unbridled energy becomes aimless; the struggle is meaningless. Resignation and the beauty of acceptance. Bodies in emotion. Bodies in acquiescence.

Q61 is situated in a twilight zone, a suspended state. In a moving landscape of isolated emotions, Q61 slowly and rhythmically builds to a long, soft scream. An infinitely desolate, yet hopeful piece.

In Q61 Ann Van den Broek takes stock of material produced in ten years of research into rhythm, emotions and movement. She creates a white, softly pulsating composition of endlessly transforming movements.

The music composition is circular. Gliding tones with a consoling resignation, combined with live-operated voice and contact microphones form the basis. The set design is inspired by the notion of niches. A clean, rhythmic space.
