Annie Hanauer is an independent dance artist based between London and France, originally from the USA. Annie regularly collaborates with other artists as a performer, initiates her own choreographic projects, and facilitates classes and workshops nationally and internationally.  Her current research is focused on how we can invite connectivity & sharpen group instinct in improvised performance, and she is interested in creating work which brings hidden stories & processes to light.  Annie believes dancing is for everyone, and is interested in dismantling the idea of a normative dancing body.

Annie currently performs around the world with long-time collaborators Rachid Ouramdane/CCN2 Grenoble and Emanuel Gat Dance (France), and regularly leads classes, workshops, and intensives around the UK and abroad. Annie danced with Candoco Dance Company (UK) from 2008-2014, where she devised & toured the work of 14 choreographers and lead diverse creative & educational projects internationally. She now continues her relationship to the company as a Candoco Associate Artist. She is one-third of AnnieVickySarah (AVS), a collective of 3 female independent dance artists launched in 2017, focused on artistic exploration, investigating ideas of inclusive practice, and supporting professional development for disabled & non-disabled dance artists. Annie’s choreographic work has been supported by Arts Council England, Siobhan Davies Dance, Candoco Dance Company, CCN2 Grenoble, and The Place.
