Dear Friends,

Super excited to teach, choreograph and perform in Asheville, NC next week!

Screen Shot 2018-02-18 at 11.15.04 PMTeaching and performing worldwide emboldens, promotes and enriches people, communities and dance, transcending socio-political and cultural boundaries. I strive to create an audacious, intimate and unique dance language that opens a dialogue about: creativity, memory, fantasy, reality and social awareness within a global community.

During my Artist-in-Residence at Asheville School from February 26th – March 2nd, 2018, I will work extensively with the students and collaborate with Kathy Leiner (Chair of Fine Arts) to create a new choreography for Asheville School’s spring interdisciplinary arts performance.

  • Emotion Creates Motion & Motion Creates Emotion Workshop: I will offer two workshops that are free and open to the public on Tuesday, February 27th and Thursday, March 1st from 6:30-9pm, intermediate and advanced dancers at Asheville School. To register contact: Asheville School Chair of Fine Arts Kathy Leiner at 828-215-2410 or leinerk@ashevilleschool.org.
  • Performances of “No more beautiful dances” March 2nd & 3rd at 7:30pm at BeBe Theatre (20 Commerce Street) I will be presenting “No more beautiful dances,” sharing this program with powerful female artists in recognition of Women’s History Month with Kathleen Meyers Leiner, Shari Azar, Susan Collard, Sharon Cooper, Michele Hower, Elizabeth Huntley, Melissa Wilhoit, Connie Schrader, Asheville Butoh Collective- Jenni Cockrell, Julie Becton-Gillum, and Constance Humphries.

“No more beautiful dances” wrestles with the ideas of exploration, introspection and reframing a woman after becoming a mother, and being an inmigrant.  Lenzu’s dance theater piece uses spoken word and video projections to tell a personal vision of femininity, and what it means to be a woman today.

Choreographer and Dancer: Anabella Lenzu

Video Projection Design: Todd Carroll

Acting and Voice Coach: Daniel Pettrow

Costumes: Jennifer Johanos
