The Performance

The Director

We invite you to imagine, question and experience within an evolving landscape of contemporary choreography and design. Enter to behold our hitting the nerve of what is. Through construction and deconstructions, the real and imagined, the desireable and repulsive this embodied curiosity traverses the contours of physical, intellectual and emotional material. It also includes camels. Whose fantasy is this? Think: Body. Agency. TLC. Emergency. Re-emerge. Taxidermy.


Anya Cloud is in her third year of the MFA program in Dance Theatre at UC San Diego. She holds undergraduate degrees in Dance and Liberal Studies from the University of Montana and is the co-director of The Wrecking Crew Dance Company. Since relocating to San Diego, Anya has had the pleasure of working and performing with Leslie Seiters, Eric Geiger, Yolande Snaith, and Alicia Peterson Baskel. She is also Adjunct Dance Faculty at California State University, San Marcos. Anya is particularly compelled to explore states of being through movement and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Perpetually perplexed and inspired by questioning the relationship between process and performance, Anya’s artistry draws on contact improvisation, release technique, somatics, and inviting in all that has yet to be imagined.
