Throughout her wide range of experience, Anna-Lou has always been keen on exploring movement in-depth so as to examine the various possibilities of our expression. Since her graduation from the London Contemporary Dance School, and over 10 years in the professional dance world, she has been involved in independent creative collaborations, teaching and worked with established companies, concurrently delving into different techniques such as Theatre, Zena Rommett®, Floor-Barre, and Argentine Tango. She has performed in the UK and overseas: including two seasons with the Kamea Dance Company (Israel) – “The Selfish Giants“, a children’s show gathering dance and theatre (Youth Theatre of Beersheva / Israel) – “The Glass House”, a site specific dance-theatre show (Dance Ahead / Carlisle, UK) – or more recently, worked with the Welsh National Opera on their revival of “Carmen”. Her commitment and curiosity have made her a versatile and distinctive artist. Both as a performer and a director she is eager to deepen her understanding of the human body and mind; find and refine “genuine” and congruous movements in relation to the music, the space, the group and the intention of the pieces. To her, this is what allows a real sense of communication with the audience and gives art the power to move and inspire everyone it reaches.
