Ans Kanen (1980-Eersel) graduated in 2005 from Codarts, Rotterdam Dance Academy. She works as a performer, teacher, choreographer and filmmaker / editor in various projects. Many of these projects have an interdisciplinary and collaborative character. Together with dance makers, different (visual) artists and designers she creates works involving the moving body. During her studies she took an interest in film and experimented with background visuals for choreography. She made two dance films that were presented at various international dance festivals. Besides that Ans works as a filmmaker and editor of documentaries. As a teacher of contemporary dance and improvisation she has worked both at home and abroad. In this combination of the dance and film she finds the inspiration for her work.
