Anna Fransen

Anna Fransen is one of the founders of Danscollectief Arnhemse Meisjes. She is based in Arnhem and studied at the ArtEZ Dance Academy.

After her studies she danced at Beeldend Danstheater Telder and Komma4, and worked with choreographers such as Cora Bos-Kroese, Kasper Ravnhoj, Jens van Daele, Lana Coporda, Laura Witzleben, Inbal Abir, Sharon Fridman, Waterlanders en Vloeistof.

Anna has been part of Danscollectief Arnhemse Meisjes since 2015. For her, dancing is most interesting outside on location, where the ground and weather are always different, and the audience often sees the performance in a setting different from the theater. In the context of her personal development process, supported by the Province of Gelderland and Beeldend Danstheater Telder, she made a series of video projections and live performances titled Kleine odes aan Moeder Aarde (Little odes to Mother Earth), where she let herself be inspired by the body and nature.

Within the dance collective, Anna, apart from dancing and creating, also likes to keep busy with the publicity and marketing, and makes the photos and trailers for new performances, Dance Flavours and workshops.
