Andreas Hannes (GR, 1987) was educated as a percussionist and choreographer, and has a passion for film. As an independent filmmaker and artist, he was a co-founder Small House Productions, a platform for international and interdisciplinary projects (2011-2015). He was also active as a social worker. From his experience as a coach for training courses on personal resilience, he developed a working methodology that also includes performance and media. He currently works as the programmer and producer of Cinedans FEST in Amsterdam.
Andreas is a graduate of SNDO (School for New Dance Development – AHK, 2018). He summarizes his artistic work with the concept of distances, either relational, physical and/or metaphysical. He is fascinated by what is considered similar or different, between bodies, traditions and disciplines, and works with the tension between them. In 2019 he received the Young Artsupport Award Amsterdam and the Moving Forward Trajectory 2018/19.
