Anna Nowicka is a dance maker, pedagogue and psychologist, a graduate of the Warsaw University, Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, and Ernst-Busch / HZT in Berlin. In recent years, based on her long term interest in the work on dreams, imagination and physical actions, she started developing a methodology to be applied to an artistic creation. Her focus lies on questions of attention, imagination and creativity, and a body as a field of infinite potential, in the state of constant becoming. Anna aims at weaving intuitive ways of creating with conscious choreographing decisions. Her works do not follow a certain esthetics, but rather share an interest to challenge the gaze, and lead it towards the unseen and unknown. Since 2010 her choreographic practice is connected with the Art Stations Foundations by Grażyna Kulczyk. Anna was rewarded a DAAD Preis, followed by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes, and Tanzstipendium from the city of Berlin. She is currently a PhD candidate at the Polish Film School in Łódź, a dreaming practitioner at „The School of Images”, intensively developing image work with Bonnie Buckner, and joyfully researching body’s possibilities with Rosalind Crisp.
