Anna Konjetzky

Choreographer Anna Konjetzky has uncompromisingly pursued her path of artistic research for several years. With insatiable curiosity she explores spatial arrangements, performance areas and the complex interaction of body, space and how they are perceived. Central to her work is her active input of sensory information into a space, to the effect that she abandons the classical stage area in favour of installation spaces or peep-show formats, offering views from all sides or only through gaps in a wall, such as in her latest works “Abdrücke” and “Fern”.

She intervenes in the performance with works on film and video, thereby opening up new prospects and throwing a different light on the body, showing it outside of the performance context or homing in on it in close-ups. In terms of content, Konjetzky’s work draws on the expressive force and narration provided by physical states. With her performers, she seeks the answers which the body gives in altered situations and states. The movements that then arise can be imperceptibly small – an inner and outer trembling; a flowing, virtuoso up-and-down; standing still or distorting the body. The body and its identity as a store of experiences form the heartbeat to Konjetzky’s pieces.

Anna Konjetzky studied at the physical theaterschool “Lassaad” (Methode  J. Lecoq) in Brussels as well as contempory dance, and bodyweather in Brussels and Berlin. From 2005 to 2008 she worked as the assistent of the choreographer Wanda Golonka at Schauspiel Frankfurt.
