  • Afraid (c) Maarten van den Abeele


Marc Vanrunxt


Afraid takes its title from the eponymous song by Nico. It is elusive, melancholic and suggestive. On the occasion of the 15th anniversary by WArd/waRD and the accompanying festivities Marc VAnrunxt suggested to make a solo for Ann Van den Broek, under the slogan: ' Watching Ann Van den Broek '. Afraid is the result of a series of brief encounters in the studio between the two choreographers. They are no strangers to each other. Since Co (te) lette (2007), Marc Vanrunxt is involved as an outside eye during almost every creation process by Ann Van den Broek. They share a fascination with the dark, the repetitive and the elusive.
