My Name Is Ann

Experimental Dance-Electronic Performance

My Name Is Ann is more than a dance-musical-visual project. Ann’s world is an authentic universe, a fictional anti-world of contradictions, both musically and conceptually. As if “recycling life into musical lightmotifs,” stories of fiction and reality express motifs ranging from activist to traditional and utmost intimacy , blurring the line between banality and an intellectual understanding of the world. Experimental electronic music combines elements of electropop, breakcore and jungle, passing from classical instruments to synthesizers or children’s instruments, and, of course, voice. Traditional song samples and fragments of audio reality, recorded on portable mp3 players, create an inventive sonic image, complemented by catchy visual imagery.  

My Name Is Ann is an electro trio comprising Lenka Moravkova a.k.a Knoflenka, Svatava and Šarka Kobzova. Lenka is a composer, musician, and journalist. She has collaborated with a plethora of trans-European artists, from Phon.o (label Shitkatapult, Berlin), to the remixer Jan P. Muchow and the Swedish sound artist Akita. She created the musical score of Jan Bohuslav’s film Conscience (Svedomi, 2004), screened at the Cannes IFF in 2005. Svatava Kobzova is a dancer, choreographer, and pianist. Since 2005 they have been working together to create the project My Name Is Ann.
