Exploring movement in its complex simplicity, Anna Huber questions dance as a language at the interface of performing and visual arts, perpetually in friction between abstraction and emotion. Since 1993 she has been creating solos, duets, ensemble works, site-specific and interdisciplinary projects and improvisations, touring internationally. She continues developing and expanding her specific artistic language characterized by complexity, intensity and precision. For her singular body of work she received numerous awards and grants, e.g. Hans Reinhart-Ring 2002, Swiss Dance- and Choreography-Award 2010. She is teaching and mentoring internationally (e.g. Valeska-Gert guest professor for Dance and Performance at Freie Universität Berlin, ZHdK Zürcher Hochschule der Künste).
Horizon (working title)
The phenomenon of the Horizon is explored in a multi-layered artistic investigation in its fascinating paradoxes: threshold or limitation as well as opening, embodying the need to expand one’s horizons, to move further and beyond and the desire for transformation. An unreachable but clearly visible line, always present but changing with the observers’ perspective and perception, appearing and disappearing. A line as well as a surface, like a skin between water and air. Movement explores the body in landscape that itself is in constant movement and change as well as the body as landscape. The senses of equilibrium and orientation oscillate between stability and mobility. The fragile nature of human existence and its precarious balance create singular intensities within the constant transformation of the scenery’s physical and sensorial impact. What traces do human presence and movement leave in space and memory?
