echo @ Kings Place London 19-20 November

Cassie Kinoshi and I are excited to announce that our new collaboration echo can be seen on 19 and 20 November at Kings Place London as part of London Unwrapped.

Experience echo, the new immersive film installation from long-time collaborators composer Cassie Kinoshi (Artist in residence for London Unwrapped) and visual artist Anne Verheij.
The installation is a sonic and visual exploration of our connection with ourselves and each other in London.

Filmed entirely using handheld cameras, echo is an immersive audio-visual triptych with London as its main character. Day to day experiences of London life are manipulated through exploratory editing and camera movement, creating an encapsulating visceral experience of the ever changing cityscape.

echo’s electro-acoustic score was created with field-recordings captured around London; familiar sounds of trains, crowds, park life and traffic are altered and re-conditioned into the unfamiliar. Blended with synthesisers, a string quintet formed from members of Chineke! Ensemble were recorded to provide ethereal textures. These samples further elevate an evocative sound world that emulates the ever-changing experience of existing in the transformative city of London.

Alleen in het hoofd
Eenzaam in het lijf
Omgeven door somberheid
Dat is het gevoel als van een depressie
Alles is anders, voelt anders of voelt niets
Maar…..
 
Langzaam laat de depressie los
De cirkel gedachten verdwijnen
Het lichaam wordt warm
Langzaam komt vertrouwen
Laat alles los wat zwart is

Iwa Pele @ Deptford X Fringe Festival 2018

Iwa Pele – a visual dance research collaboration by Kathrin Gramelsberger with Maarten Krielen and Anne Verheij

Iwa Pele is a concept from the Nigerian Yoruba religion and means balanced character. In Iwa Pele three artists go in search of this balance.
Nigerian-German initiator and choreographer Kathrin Gramelsberger explores her mixed heritage.
Inspired by Orisha – deities of the Yoruba people, this visual dance performance combines video art, Nigerian celebration dances and contemporary dance in a distorted way to discuss tradition and identity creating new points of view.

ONES COUNTERPOINT trailer

The trailer of ONES COUNTERPOINT is online!

Please go and check it out!

More news and developments from us on our ONES collaboration soon straight from Japan @AnnePointNL !

ONES_COUNTERPOINT©ANNE•2016

ONES COUNTERPOINT depicts the inner voice of a haunted woman by crawling under her moving skin.
The interior and exterior are brought together by the three elements of water, wind and earth.
As the lines between movement and manipulation blur, the woman’s calm facade cracks, revealing something dark and mysterious that makes its way to the surface.

In ONES COUNTERPOINT Anne Verheij (NL) and Miku Tsuchiya (Japan) cross the vast distance between the UK and Japan via internet to make their second diptych (the first being nominated at LSFF 2017 for Best Experimental Short Film).
Their two individually created contemporary dance films, made from the same footage, are juxtaposed on a single screen where the soundtrack, especially created out of the field recordings they made in the UK and Japan, bring them together.

Dance and the moving image research with Harriet Latham

Yesterday Harriet Latham and I dived back into the physical part of our summer collaboration.

Over the past couple of months we have been filming, watching and talking about our collaboration and now we are back to filming.
One of the key points in this research is the trust that we have in each other and each others work approach. The space this creates for our individual and dual growth is fascinating and encouraging. It takes our work process to the next level where we have the freedom to try new things.

We are on the move!

ANNE• crosses new borders in 2015!

By the end of October 2014 I started a research project with choreographer Miku Tsuchiya. The process consisted out of four makers intensives on four different locations throughout the UK in which spatial composition, dance, painting, movement and film were explored. The flow was enticing and the footage was rich. Consistency and style began to form out of two different disciplines, dance and visual art, bringing it to a new level in which exploration and intuition became the leading roles of this collaboration. Central to this research is the use of the digital canvas as our main tool.

When in December 2014 Miku moved back to Japan, we became well aware that in this digital age boundaries are relative when it comes to distance. Since we have landed in the next step of our work process, the digital step, we have decided to collaborate from opposite ends of the world.

From this day we will log the process of our collaboration onto this blog as a support for the work being created through theory and practice.
