Alive & Well Productions

Performance projects by Annie Kahane

Alive & Well Productions creates and presents original performance made of movement, text and song. We mean for our work to be compelling, accessible and emotionally honest. Alive & Well Productions is a fiscally sponsored project of Dancers’ Group.

I create performance made of movement, language and song that prioritizes relatability and emotional honesty.

My goals are to captivate a diverse audience and to stimulate their humanity.

I am equally poet and movement maker, braiding dance and language to illuminate images, emotions and sounds that have universal resonance.

My work is informed by classical, contemporary and hip-hop dance, folk song practices, devised theater, method acting, the poetry of both the academy and the slam.

I believe that our favorite music, films and books make us more full, more alive, more connected to ourselves and to each other. I believe that contemporary performance should open us to the pocket of human vitality that we feel in a dark movie theater, or blasting the sound system in our cars with the windows rolled down.
