Thanksgiving is a time of reflection and gratitude, and we are thankful for so much.
We completed our first year of the AnA project in the spring. Thanks to your support we were able to touch many lives with the concept of drawing from movement through workshops and performances.
Carrie S. Brzezinski has generously donated her dance studio for the first year and continues to support us in this manner into the future.
Moving forward we are excited to announce the official partnering of Venus Dance Company 1&2 with the AnA Project.
Anthe, as director and primary artist of the AnA Project, working with Carrie, director of Venus Dance co., choreographer and dancer, collaborated their differing art forms creating an amazing show at Temple University on November 7th and November 8th. Three astounding performances consisting of over thirteen art pieces by Anthe were utilized as backdrops and live motion of Drawing- from-Dance. The Drawing-from-Dance and backdrops occurred during the dance performances by Carrie and Venus Dance Company 1 and 2.
This is the first of many theatrical experiences where the works created by visual artists will be integrated into the dance as part of the performance. This brings the performance aspect of the AnA Project merging mind and body into one dynamic work of art a realization.
In the upcoming year Anthe and Carrie will be working to provide drawing from dance workshops to Carson Valley Children Aid [orphanage], Bethlehem Senior Living, and other venues that are currently in the works.
Thanks again for all your support and have a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving.
Artist & Director of the AnA Project
