Annette Brandanger is originally from Norway.

She trained at Laban Trinity Conservatoire of Dance, London in dance techniques, performance and choreography and at The National Arts Academy of Oslo, pedagogy 


Since 2001 Annette has been working with, about, through and around dance. Dancing, exploring, researching, developing, reflecting and questioning.

Why dance?

Annette looks at dance as something all human beings do. Her way of working with dance is very much related to the mobility of the human body and how we are able to explore our possibilities of movement from within. She is interested and curious about work that allows time to create, explore, investigate, communicate, process and produce. She is in love with powerful movement, large and bold expression, chaos, simplicity and powerful use of space, filled with great attention to detail and presence of the moment.

She develops educational work related to choreographic ideas and principals and has received several grants in support of her projects.
