Anna Casey

Anna is a movement artist, educator and producer living and working in the South West of England. Anna regularly lectures in higher education, most recently on the Movement, Mind and Ecology MA at Schumacher College. Anna also works within community contexts where she developed her Movement for Learning programme which she is beginning to integrate into wider CPD, FE and HE fields.  

Anna was a founder member of Blank Studio's in Brighton, creating a hub for interdisciplinary practice, research and performance. 

Anna has a particular interest in dialogues between the human and non-human worlds and how these can be utilised to generate a greater understanding of health, true sustainability and poetic activism. In response to this she has developed her own somatic movement pedagogy ‘The Listening Body’ a process of developing conversation with the field of self (human) and the environment through the multi-dimensional listening with the human and more than human worlds.
