Choreographer on Lockdown creates LIVE Rock meeting Podcast with music legends Rock Dance Theatres performer Anna Achimowicz puts together a NEW creative meeting platform integrating internationally artists from the Rock, Metal and Performance World
Born in Poland, raised in San Diego California, and a self-claimed “citizen of Europe” Anna Achimowicz, a performing professional currently grounded in Poland with her shows and professional engagements creates a LIVE Rock meeting Podcast with music legends driven by her love and passion for Rock & Metal music. Anna is first and far most a choreographer, dancer and artist director of the rock hybrid, working freelance under the name of Rock Dance Theatre. Anna founded Rock Dance Theatre in Sweden 4 years ago, but has been actively creating on stage ever since she was a kid, and 2020 marks her 20th year anniversary. A LIVE talk and interview series initially being a driving force for human contact in quarantine restrictions led her to a development start of “just a conversation” into covering a bit behind the scenes of Rock Dance Theatre history, artists involved in her projects, inspirations, but especially documenting interesting artists and their stories in the field of Rock and Metal worldwide. The meetings are supposed to inspire, entertain but also sustain the legacy of invited guests for the future. Anna says: “I stared this LIVE interwiew thing a couple of years back actually as “33 minutes with Anna Achimowicz - The Stage Talk - 33 minutes with Anna Achimowicz” round 2015/2016 just to kill time between shows and being on the road. Interviews a couple of friends in the performing arts business like Johannes Randolf and Bettina Schaeffer of American Ballet Theatre, but never really did more with it” Years later, ironically the COVID-19 pandemic has created time and space for storytelling that evolved into Rock Dance Theatre LIVEstream meetings with Guests.
