From October till the end of November 2015, Anna and two of her coworkers: Aleksandra Osowicz and Weronika Pelczyńska will be staying in Budapest for a VARP Performing Arts residency hosted by the L1 Association and supported by the Polish Institute in Budapest. During this time, they will develop a project focused on dreaming, using a dream dialogue and perspective shifts as tools for sourcing movement, choreography and composition.
The research will be one of numerous steps in the bigger DREAM STATES project, comprising of workshops, and simultaneously developing a performative trio based in the dreams of the dancers. Their piece will premiere in January 2016 in the Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk in Poznań.
