Anna Koch is a dancer / choreographer working in a wide range of practices and fields, in Sweden and internationally. Since 2006 she has been running the dance/art platform Weld in Stockholm.

ishi vu: With his imagination firmly indulged in thoughts of hermetism and synthesis, it is perhaps only natural that ishi vu readily erases many of the boundaries that keep the one from the other. This simple but profound philosophy puts a fundamental dynamic mark on ishi vu’s expression – in everything from odd choice of words to explorative musical efforts. ishi vu’s forthcoming record on Studio Barnhus—releasing this week—has already been picked up by Resident Advisor and THUMP to name a few.
