My work is motivated by my belief in the body’s capacity to transcend logic and convey truth. Within a rigorous and articulate movement structure, a dancer will draw on internal resources as well as the living archive of their previous training and performance experiences. As the body charts its own unique course to navigate the precarious and elegant tasks at hand, deep layers of individuality come to the surface. I am interested in effort on both the intellectual and embodied planes, fascinated by our perceived mental and physical limits and the points where those two overlap.
In addition to her work as a choreographer and performer, Anna has worked in arts administration for many years. Some favorite past roles have included Public Relations Coordinator for Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Company and Communications Manager for Dorrance Dance, and Artistic Administrator for the Vail Dance Festival. Most recently she was the Company Manager for John Jasperse Projects.
