Anne Juren

Guest Professor in the BA and MA programm

Anne Juren, born in Grenoble/France, is a dancer, choreographer, artist-researcher and Feldenkrais® Practitioner based in Vienna. Her choreographic works and artistic research have been extensively presented in international artistic platforms, festivals, museums, and art venues. In her work, Juren tries to expand the term choreography and merge it into her soma therapeutic practices in engaging the body in different states of physical, sensorial, corporeal and poetic experiences, reflecting on the possibilities of encounters. Since 2013, Juren has been a Feldenkrais® practitioner. She was part of the artistic committee for the Master in Choreography at DOCH from 2014-2018. She finished her PhD in artistic research titled « Studies on Fantasmical Anatomies" at SKH Stockholm University of the Arts under the supervision of André Lepecki and Sandra Noeth. She is a Guest Professor at HZT and will start her Postgraduate Research under the title "Choreotherapy" at SKH in 2025.

Anne Juren's transdisciplinary artistic research encompasses a spectrum of experiences and practices. She has developed as a choreographer, dancer and Feldenkrais practitioner. By drawing on various fields of knowledge – anatomy, psychoanalysis, feminist and queer theories, poetry and somatic practices – she expands choreography towards disparate discourses, practices and treatments of the body. Based on Feldenkrais' speculative use of language, imagination and touch, she has developed several body-orientated practices. Her teaching and seminars focus is situated at the intersection of the therapy and the choreographic, the politic of the body and the poetic.
