Fusion of elements has been known to human kind as well amongst oldschool rockers starting an comletely new era of music....
The creative aspect of transforming elements and sometimes taking their meaning and daily function. To some its already misuse, to others a second or third life, given by its creator? What are we talking about today? Definitely not just one fusion and not one element.

Anna has recently celebrated her 2nd anniversary with Rock Dance Theatres existance on 17.05.2019, so did Prepostevolution but just a day earlier on 16.05.2017, its a symbolic date, because the first events taking place in forming Rock Dance Theatre have been already present in march 2016...That is another interesting story to we promise to cover another time...

That was the first encounter that led to the music videos premiere on the wide screen of Porgy & Bess Club in Vienna during last years "Z" Music Awards where Anna and Rock Dance Theatre were also a part of the live program.
