Alumni Space Grant (2018/2019)
Anna Vomacka is driven by her curiosities and cravings for community, connection, and spaces of shared learning / (un)learning. Perhaps it is through this desire to connect and preserve her childishly-curiosities that Anna found (and stuck with/got stuck to) dance and movement. Anna’s work explores: collective realities, shared intimacy, idiosyncratic differences, physical manifestations of self-imposed & socially imposed labels, power of identity, emergence of community, and recycling of movements, dancers, ideas, waste. Anna graduated from the Ohio State University with a BFA in Dance. While there she worked with Bebe Miller on the creation of two original works. Working extensively with former Trisha Brown dancer, Vicky Shick, Anna performed a recreation of Brown’s “Glacial Decoy” (1979). She was part of Ryan Kelly & Brennan Gerard’s Bessie award winning instillation “Timelining”, which premiered at The Kitchen (2014) and was later shown at the Guggenheim (2015). Anna was the recipient of the Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX) Alumni Space Grant in 2019. Also in 2019, Anna performed in Mei Yamanaka’s “If You, Then There”. Anna has been working with Nami Yamamoto since 2017, together they performed at “Troopers Brother” at St. Ann’s Warehouse’s Labapalooza (Puppetry Theater).
