バース アナ

バース アナ ANNA BARTH

As a dancer I draw my material from things that touch and move me. Dreams, sounds, landscapes, words, gestures, colours, smell, people, animals, nature. My body is a vessel of manifolded experience of life and death, of love, interweaving past – present - future.

Works as a freelance dancer, improviser, choreographer and artistic director of the DanceArt Labotratory Berlin.

She studied Modern Dance, Improvisation and Composition with Alwin Nikolais and Murray Louis in New York and Butoh Dance with renowned co-founder and master Kazuo Ohno and his son Yoshito Ohno in Japan.

At the intersection of Improvisation and Butoh Anna Barth has devoted herself to the research of the “body-memory”, developing a body-language that reflects upon the existential condition and thriving forces of the human experience. Life, love and death itself, engraved in the memory of the body, are the themes around which her creations evolve.

Barth’s experimental projects with international artists from different art-fields have been realized through a variety of venues in New York, Japan and Europe; 1994 she received the “Pro-Art-Foundation Prize” for her creative work in New York City. She works as soloist as well as in changing formations and different constellations. In the last decade she has been involved with group-work and collective works. With her own company she has created site-specific performance-pieces at various inside and outside spaces, some of which she considers as “Interventions” in public space.
