Anna Kuroda
Dance | Interdisciplinary | Performance   (NSW)

Anna Kuroda is a dancer and choreographer based in Sydney. She completed her Bachelor of Movement Science at the Japan Women’s College of Physical Education in 2009. She continued her body work training at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, Austria from 2010-2011.

Starting in 2007 Kuroda worked with Nibroll as a dancer, performing in Japan, Australia, Singapore and the USA. Nibroll’s Romeo OR Juliet, in which she had a lead role, was awarded the Japan Dance Forum Award 2008 Grand Prix. Since then she has worked with a large array of dance companies and other arts organisations around the world.

Recently, Kuroda was supported by The Japan Foundation Sydney as an individual artist during Murasaki Penguin’s 2012-13 ‘Citylights~街の灯’ project. In 2014-15 she was awarded a DAIR Residency supported by Ausdance NSW.

Anna’s movement practice is focused purely around reflection on the environment and internal and external air flow surrounding the body to express sharpness, fragility and unique rhythm. She also designs staging, installations, sound and costumes for Murasaki Penguin works.
