Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency
Anna Huber is a Swiss dancer and choreographer. Anna works primarily as a soloist and her works are very specific encounters with live museums and architectural sites. Her highly individualistic and formalist works raise questions of precision and perception, particularly with respect to form. In Anna’s works, the moving body becomes a living sculpture that continually and repeatedly transforms, questions, redefines and loses itself.
Anna began her choreographic research in 1993 during her engagement at the Staatstheater Cottbus. Since 2002 she has been developing a series of architecture-specific performances entitled detours, with the percussionist Fritz Hauser. In 2018, she reworked and restaged one of her most well-known pieces, unsichtbarst, which she first premiered in 1998 and toured internationally until 2008.
