Durham artist Anna Barker brings excerpts of her dance “it’s not me it’s you” to the NCDF Tour this year. She discusses some of the themes in the work, as well as why she loves living and dancing in Durham. Anna will be teaching a master class at Meredith College on September 19, called Technique and Creative Dancemaking. Open to the public, ages 12+. Find more info here.

Anna Barker is the artistic director of real.live.people.durham. She strives to create work that reaches a diverse audience. Anna hails from Durham, North Carolina by way of South Africa by way of London. She attended Durham School of the Arts high school and spent many summers at the North Carolina School of the Arts and the American Dance Festival. After completing degrees in Dance and Psychology at Temple University, Anna lived and worked in New York City. In November 2013 she was awarded an artist residency at Elsewhere Collaborative, a living-museum and artist collective in Greensboro, NC, where she created and performed a site-specific work, “booted & spurred”. She is a founding member of the Triangle Dance Alliance, a group which seeks to connect, support and facilitate a community of dancers within the Durham/ Raleigh/ Chapel Hill area. Anna has shown work as part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, WAXworks at Triskelion Arts (Brooklyn), at Dance New Amsterdam (Manhattan), the New York Film School, and locally at the Carrboro ArtsCenter, PROMPTS at the Carrack Art Gallery, and the American Dance Festival’s Local Look & Listen (Durham).
