‘I feel like when I’m dancing … I feel seen the way I want to be seen.’

Annie Edwards is a disabled dance artist from Brighton, now based in London. 

She works with hip hop and contemporary dance, performing and creating work for a number of years. Her practice combines a love of movement and music with a drive for social justice.

This video is part of The Shimmering Extraordinary, a mini-series of six new short dance films, created by Emmy-Award nominated director Fx Goby.

Commissioned as part of our Safe to Be Me™ Festival 2021, a digital festival of dance that celebrates diversity, the films are inspired by the programme’s themes of acceptance, identity, and respect.

Safe to Be Me™ and Safe to Be Me™ Festival are proudly sponsored by Aberdeen Standard Investments.
