TANGLED is a choreographic duet created by Anastasia Evsigneeva with artistic input by Anna Protsiou.
Anastasia and Anna have been colleagues and close friends since 2015 when they met through the Professional Program at the School of Contemporary Dancers. Going through ups and downs they have built a strong bond over the years. Lots of travelling and working with different choreographers and artists including Roberto Mosqueda and Ilse Torres (Mexico),and Robin Poitras (Regina, Canada) intensely inspired Anastasia.
I’m Not a Human at All
Anastasia’s solo contortion act I’m Not A Human At All explores intricate ways of travelling across the stage by continually making subtle shifts of the body weight. The spine is one of the central focuses in Anastasia’s artistic practice.
Contortion Duet & Solo
Anastasia and Anna have collaboratively created and performed different contortion acts and are currently working on a new duet and solos.
From Worlds Apart
Choreographed by Liz Cooper “From Worlds Apart” is inspired by the biographies of Anna and Anastasia and their story of friendship. The work integrates aerial hoop, contortion and dance, and was premiered in December 2018 for the winter shows of the Professional Program of SCD.
