She trained as a performer at Laban Trinity Conservatoire of Dance BA Hons (97-00) and Post Grad Transitions Dance Company (2000-2001) in London. She did her pedagogy training at The National Arts Academy of Oslo (2010-11) and Mentoring certificate at the The Norwegian Academy of Music (2020-21).
Since 2001 Annette has been working with, about, through and around dance. Dancing, exploring, researching, developing, reflecting and questioning.
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 in the moment.
