Stories

Introduction

My story begins in The Hague where I was born into a creative family of musicians, sculptors and ballet choreographers on the exact same day on which the famous Miles Davis quintet performed at the Tivolis Concertsal in Copenhagen and two years before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first two people to land on the lunar surface. With the inspirational example of my father’s jazzy piano playing in the house, and the guidance of some inspiring teachers, I ...

Music

I studied with pianists Frans Elsen, Rob van Kreeveld, Geoffrey Douglas Madge and Lanny Kho. I graduated in 1991 and left for a ...

Pressquote

Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s "Before After," a duet that portrays the end of a relationship through contemporary movement, is being presented by the company for the first time at the Pillow. It is set to music by Marc van Roon, intersected with recorded fragments of intermittent speech that refers to the changing of traffic lights. "I like the way it has equal levels of strength and vulnerability," said Boal. "You don’t know who has the upper hand."
