Zooming in on Loss Soli (2020)

Zooming in on Loss

With Zooming in on Loss Soli, Ann Van den Broek makes an additional variation on Zooming in on Loss, the second performance from the triptych The Memory Loss Collection.

For these solos, Van den Broek creates a solo performance for each of the three original performers that takes place in the same framework/decor as the original performance. However, the co-performers are no longer physically present and hang around the soloist’s world like a shadow from the past. Zooming in on Loss Soli focuses on the internal struggle, loss and relationship between the individual and his social environment. Anger and frustration, sadness and pain, resignation and indifference are exposed in a mosaic of emotions.

– The Daily Indie (NL) on Zooming in on Loss

“This second part in a fascinating cycle about dementia also has a dark tone.”
