Anna Buonomo is an Italian-born contemporary choreographer working in the UK as a dance artist, performer
and teacher. Her work blends ballet, hip-hop and contemporary styles to achieve unconventional movement dynamics using emotions and human narrative as starting points.
In October 2010, Anna’s work Tied Up was selected by UK Young Artists (www.ukyoungartists.co.uk) for their
first National Showcase in Derby with mentoring support from Akram Khan. Anna's works have also been shown at The Place Robin Howard Theatre, Nottingham Playhouse and Stratford Circus. In May 2011, Anna was selected as choreographer for The Big Dance Royal Flash Mob event for 135 performers at Buckingham Palace, viewed live by 200 people and over 1 million times since on YouTube.
In May 2012, Anna created Story of a Night Pianist, a site-specific work with movement and live music by composer Maestro Lorenzo Turchi-Floris animating the unique space of Trinity Buoy Wharf in Docklands. The piece has since toured in London (4 venues); Manchester; Hamburg, Germany and Aarau, Switzerland, and become the subject of a separate dance film project, Faraday's Cage.
Following the birth of her first child, Daniele, in early 2014 Anna took a short hiatus but returned with new solo I Am You And You Are Me in summer 2015. In 2016, Anna received funding from the Dance Enterprise Ideas Fund at East London Dance to pilot a new community dance project for older dancers, Water Under The Bridge.
Anna aims to create inspiring, accessible, cross-disciplinary narrative performance works using a blend of movement styles and physical theatre. By combining influences from a variety of forms and by working in unusual and outdoor spaces, Anna’s work aims to bring new audiences to live performance – in particular, young people who may not otherwise engage with dance in the theatre.
