If it moves, it’s alive! Dancing is probably the only thing I ever actually did since as far back as my memory goes. I love to perform. I’ve learnt various movement forms and I’ve also tried unlearning them.
Scroll below for some interesting projects and performances that I have been a part of.
Archives of Collapse (Berlin, 2022)
Artistic Direction, Text & Choreography:Annelie Andre
„Archives of Collapse“ explores the collapse as a transformative event. What leads to a collapse and what is the potential of it? What occurs in the silence after?
Destruction and creation, grief and hope coexist in a world where softness and fragility become tools to re-connect – an attempt of constantly diving into new dimensions rather than resigning.

Sailing City (Copenhagen & Helsingør, 2016)
Copenhagen Dream House
“Sailing City” offered entertaining performance experiments and environmental debates in the unusual atmosphere of ocean and docks. As participants of the project, our wish is to help eliminate powerlessness and instead engage in positive alternatives, in meaningful symbiosis with our environment. Like many around the globe, we do not want to contribute to the numbness and greed of consumer culture. The consequences of lifestyle, unsustainable growth and fossil fuels today affect the living conditions of more and more, creating irreversible damage to the nature we ourselves are a part of.
“Sailing City” is a project supported by the Danish Ministry of Culture.

Arts in Education (India, 2012-2015)
The KHA Foundation
As part of the KHA foundation’s program in education, I taught classes in movement arts for children of all ages in schools, children’s homes and juvenile detention centers. With the focus on encouraging individual freedom of expression and creativity in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Window Dancing (Bangalore, India. 2013)
The KHA Foundation
As part of the KHA foundation’s Forum for Composition and Choreography(FoCoCo), several choreographers created dance pieces that would be publicly performed in malls in the city. The works questioned and reflected the rapid take over of shopping malls that completely shot up the consumeristic lifestyle.
