Anastasia McCammon

"Hi! I’m Anastasia. My performance and research focus on the moving, speaking, performing body. Growing up in Cyprus, I developed my professional training in dance, theater and somatic practices in California. In October 2020 I completed a masters in interdisciplinary Art Praxis at the DAI.
My performance praxis tries to test out various methods of ‘improvising’ as tools for theatrical world-making and narrative character development. I am drawn to the use of voice, its rhythms, characters and  stories.

Some questions I like to think about:
What defines a stage? What about an audience? When does an exchange happen? Between an audience or public, on or off or beneath a ‘stage.’ When does a character or mask end or begin or dissolve? Does one need an audience to ‘improvise’ or to ‘publish’? What are the signals or signs that tell you you are being watched/you are performing, that you are watching/are part of an ‘audience’?"
