“WOLKEN” ( working title )
The focus of the project “Wolken” is the production-open research of exploring creativity and expression through movement for children between 4-6 years, with the aim of generating content and concept drafts for an interactive dance/acrobatic performance.
During the spring of 2022 Anna recieved a research grant from Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media and the programme Take Hear.
For 3 months she gather information on how to create an interactive performance for children, through interviewing kindergarten teachers and reading literature.
The aim for the research was also to learn more about working with an including approach, making the interactive performance accessible for children with disabilities and/or special needs.
With the collected information Anna begun to explore ideas for stage- and costume design as well as movement material.
“This research grant has made it possible for me to dive fully into the depth of this idea. I’ve gained many new perspectives in terms of inclusion works, ideas for movement, telling a story and working to create a performance for young children. ” – Anna
The aim is to continue the project with possible creation & touring in 2023-20
