Ania Nowak works choreographing thoughts, language and situations. Her main interests are currently centred around time economies in choreography and love as a practice of improvisation and (not) understanding. She is engaged in developing networks of collaboration with her peers based in and outside of Berlin, rethinking modes of working in today's performing arts and encouraging queer-feminist practices within the field. Her last work "Offering What We Don't Have To Those Who Don't Want It" premiered at Sophiensaele in Berlin as part of Tanztage Berlin 2016. Nowak has presented her own and collaborative works in theatres, galleries and art centres in Warsaw, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Stockholm a.o. She has been artist-in-residence at Zamek Culture Centre in Poznan, Poland, with the project "Love As a Strategy For Generating Knowledge And Spending Time", and —together with Martin Hansen— at Dancehouse Melbourne. She has also collaborated in the making of a mass choreography for the opening ceremony of the first European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan. Nowak is a recipient of DanceWeb scholarship at Impuls Tanz Festival 2014 in Vienna.
