Annie Hanauer is an independent dance artist based between London and France, originally from the USA. She has performed, choreographed, toured, and taught extensively for over a decade. Annie sees movement as a medium for people to meet and is fascinated by how our bodies are read socially, what they carry, their concreteness, and infinite potential through movement. She believes in our bodies’ capacity to connect empathetically, and their power to express that which is implied, felt, or beyond language. She is interested in the wisdom & creativity of people who have been 'othered', stemming from her own lived experience as a disabled woman, and wants to dismantle ideas of a normative dancing body. Choreographically, she has developed her own methodology for group improvisation performance, and is currently researching on utopia, collective imagination, & disability.
Coaching offer: Choreography
I hope to open a conversation with the artist applying and creating together a bespoke way of working which is flexible and fun and allows them to get the most of what they need. I welcome all artists and am particularly interested in supporting disabled artists developing their own practice.
Areas of focus:
Support in developing a choreographic work (artistic feedback, conversation, exploration)
Developing personal movement practice & vocabulary
Approaches to inclusive/accessible practice
Exchanging movement practice (workshopping, exploring creative tasks, researching ways into movement)
