Annie Rudnik received a 2012/13 LinkUP Residency Award to produce her work “We Hope, Conspire” which brought together 18 performers ranging in ages 17 through 93 in an inter-generational dance that pulled from improvisation, social dance, and Vaudeville to create a work that was wholly original and intensely thoughtful.
Annie Rudnik is a choreographer, Feldenkrais practitioner, and theater technician based in Chicago. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College where she studied dance, social justice, and history with Sara Rudner, Dan Hurlin, Lyde Sizer, and many others. Her works have been performed in Chicago, New York, Boston, New Orleans, and the Czech Republic. At times you can find her on your local street corner singing and tap dancing and encouraging others to join. She is also the biographer for Vaudevillian performer Harold “Stumpy”Cromer.
