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.
