Anna Semenova-Ganz -Performance Artist, Dreamaturg and Scholar based in Hamburg and Moscow
Anna creates her interdisciplinary works on the gap of performance, public art and media art, as well as choreography. Most of her works are site-specific and participatory. Anna focuses her artistic research on the questions of identity, post-soviet body, the body politics and the place making. Runs summer residency for artistic research "Lesnoye 11" near Moscow.
My current artistic research lays in the field of choreography, ethnography, communication and even anthropology.
How does the body inherit the movement patterns?
What information stays in the body?
How do we remember?
How to research on it?
Through laboratory formats together with other performers I research on the traces of the former spaces and objects in the body.
