Founded in 2010, Anarchy Dance Theatre uses contemporary dance theatre to express our concerns about people and life; by reproducing through movement the intricate power structures and personal relationships in today’s powerful social structures. Anarchy strives to create a dance training structure of its own, starting from awareness of the body, and reaching out to explore the relationships between time, space, objects and others, with the intention of increasing one’s own sensitivity. In addition, Anarchy also breaks free from the traditional restraints of theater, producing an entirely new performance space. With the dancers, audience, interactivity, theater and environment as its main elements, Anarchy then calls upon the choreographer’s distinct ways of handling the “relationships” between these elements, to create a dance vocabulary Anarchy calls its own, and which has as its vision the exploration of a expressionistic dance style of our times.

"Create an immersive physical-digital environment that puts no boundaries between real and virtual space. "
