For this third interview documenting the creative process behind the marathon project Danse Mutante, Angélique Willkie spoke to Ann Van den Broek, who inherited the segment created by Kettly Noël (Bamako). It’s a fascinating conversation about the artist’s creative process and how she was inspired, not by the movements and props she had been given, but rather by the essential message of the previous segment.
