Anya Cloud (US)



Anya Cloud is an experimental contemporary dance artist originally from Alaska and currently based between Colorado and Berlin. As a queer white person, she orients her work to cultivate radical aliveness as an artist-activist practice. Collaboration, questioning, and deep physicality are central to all of her work. Makisig Akin and she co-direct the project-based dance company The Love Makers. Their work has recently been produced by DOCK 11, Tanzfabrik Berlin Bühne, Tanztage Berlin, Movement Research at the Judson, OUTsider Fest, and What You See Festival. Important collaborators include Makisig Akin, Sara Shelton Mann, Karen Schaffman, Eric Geiger, Ishmael Houston-Jones, and Nhu Nguyen among others. She has taught/facilitated contact improvisation, improvisation, contemporary dance, and somatics internationally at festivals and institutions including at Guatemala Contact Improvisation Festival, Tanzfabrik Berlin Schule, ImPulsTanz, Tanzquartier, wcciJAM, Ukraine Contact Improvisation Festival, Metamorphosis Improvisation Research Festival, The Field Center, BeingTouch, and Seattle Festival of Dance Improvisation among others. She currently teaches at the University of Colorado Boulder, earned an MFA from University of California San Diego, and is trained in the Feldenkrais Method® under Elizabeth Beringer.
