Hi, I’m Anja Ali-Haapala.

I am a Brisbane-based audience researcher and dance practitioner.

In 2018 I am undertaking a Dance Artist Residency with Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council, the second Audience and Access Evaluation for Supercell Festival of Contemporary Dance, and co-chairing the Early Career Researchers Community – Dance.

Here you will find information about the variety of work I do. The areas that I am really passionate about are:

  • understanding audiences and enriching audience experiences,
  • contemporary and community dance practice, and
  • supporting emerging dance researchers.

I am always interested in connecting with people with similar interests and am available for projects and lectures in these areas. If that sounds like you, please do get in touch!
