“…you put me down with your accusations, you make me strong with your accusations…”
Accusations is an intriguing, nearly endless relay race of live movement, images, film, sound and words. Performers are absorbed by meaning, contemplation, accusation and regret. Accusation focuses on choices that were or were never made, chances that were or were not taken, mistakes that consume, desires that have yet to be satisfied.
Together with composer Nicolas Rombouts and video & lighting designer Bernie van Velzen, Ann creates a cross-media installation in Accusations that can be manipulated live. A human loop machine with performers as conductors.
Ann, with performer and lyricist Gregory Frateur, is inspired by the text of the play Selbstbezichtigung (Self-accusation) by author Peter Handke. However, the original text is reimagined by Ann’s experiences, feelings and analyses.
