Music for Dance & Theatre


Evelien has worked with a couple of wonderful theatre makers (see below). She has repeatedly worked with choreographer and dancer Eva Baumann. In November 2018 they premiered #herland, a dance performance in an installative space, inspired by Christine de Pizan`s “The Book of the City of the Ladies”, in Stuttgart, Germany.

‘Deren Extreme macht die niederländische Komponistin und Sängerin Evelien van den Broek mal mit elektrischem Brizzeln, mal mit engelsgleicher Stimme erlebbar. (…) Vor allem aber ist diese Performance ein inspirierendes Mutmachstück’ – Stuttgarter Zeitung


A dance piece by Eva Baumann about loneliness and being confronted with emotions of rage and helplessness. A visual performance using video, animation and a set decor made of 70 gypsum masks.
