Anastasia Kostner is a contemporary dancer who is keen on different movement styles and performing techniques. As an investigated mover, she has been interested also in the underlying patterns of motion and therefore studies deeper into Reflexology, Embryology and lately mainly Rolfing, which enrich her performance and teaching. Next to performing in highly physical pieces, collaborations with musicians and visual artists are her future passions of investigation.
Animu Dance is a company which produces work with dance and new media, founded by video maker Maarten van der Glas and dance maker Anastasia Kostner. The young initiative showcased their dance videos at ‘Choreographic Captures’ in Munich (DE), ‘Cinedans’ in Amsterdam and ‘Cadans’ in Den Haag (NL), ‘DanceCameraWest’ in Los Angeles (USA) and ‘Royal academy of music’ in London (UK). Next to dance films, Animu also creates Installations and dance performances. Their first work was chosen for the ‘Anticorpi XL’ platform in Italy and was performed across the country. Upcoming projects are supported by the Ministry of Culture in Northern Italy and Dutch Funds.
