This movement analysis of pain was made to measure for the leading Czech company by Flemish innovator Ann Van den Broek.

A piece for 7 dancers based on an original movement phrase, the pain phrase, used in the production I SOLO MENT (Ann Van den Broek, 2008). Movement springing from the feelings of pain and sadness one feels after losing a loved one, a friend, a parent, a child. Stepping on stage, each of the dancers sets on a path of confronting one's inner emotions — from lust to aggression, from euphoria to apathy. Sorrow is an eye-opener, revealing unexpected forms and perspectives. A compelling choreography, transformative force, rhythm and intense emotions.

choreography: Ann Van den Broek

performing: Zuzana Herényiová, Sylva Nečasová, Nataša Novotná, Václav Kuneš, Milan Odstrčil, Vojtěch Rak and Alexandr Volný.
