ANNA KONJETZKY

Anna Konjetzky

Since 2005, Anna Konjetzky has been creating dance pieces and dance installations in which her choreographic thinking is a practice of reflection and transformation that is always embedded in a socio-political context. This is reflected both in terms of content and body, but also in the formats and settings she makes for her own choreographies, as well as in her ongoing research and practice with other artists and urban society. 

Anna Konjetzky always sees her work as a proposal for dialogue, her physical, aesthetic and political research is characterised by a queer-feminist approach.

Her work has been shown at Spielart, Dance, Tanzwerkstatt Europa, Sommerszene Salzburg, Grand théâtre national Luxembourg, Tanztage Potsdam, Cofestival Ljubljana, Tempo festival Rio di Janeiro, Festival Danse Balsa Marni Bruxelles, in Kampala, Nairobi, Hanoi, Istanbul, Shanghai, Nuremberg, Krakow, Warsaw, Brazil, Panama, South Africa... among others.

She also creates pieces for established dance companies such as the Staatstheater Braunschweig and the Staatstheater Saarbrücken. Teaching assignments also take her to universities and colleges, such as the Academy of Fine Arts Munich, Mozarteum Salzburg, Cologne University of Music and Dance, Academy of theatre and dance Amsterdam.....
