Anna Nowicka is a dance maker and psychologist. She graduated the Warsaw University, Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, and Ernst-Busch/HZT in Berlin.
In recent years, based on her long term interest in the work on dreams, imagination and physical actions, she started developing a methodology to be applied to an artistic creation. Her focus lies on questions of imagination and creativity, and a body as a field of potentiality, in the state of constant becoming.
In 2011 Anna's research has been recognized, and she was rewarded a DAAD Preis, followed by the choreographic scholarship from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes. In 2012 she received a danceWEB scholarship at the ImpulsTanz Festival in Vienna. She is currently studying at the School of Images of dr Catherine Shainberg.
The informal presentation is intended to share the working process I was engaged with during my three weeks residency here, at WASP. It is but a draft, an attempt of a portrait. I am working with the question of how to subvert the “known” body, deconstructing it in order to induce new, unobvious meanings.
Taking a portrait of an individual as a starting point, my work plays with viewers’ desire to make sense of what they see and seek a sense completeness. I aim to offer a space where multiple readings of the body are possible, and where the body is revealed as an illusion of consistency, wholeness as fraud. (Anna Nowicka)
