Body is a vessel of memories. Movement is a key to translating these memories. My mission is to draw attention to the mindfulness of dance movement practices and somatic methodologies for mental health.

Il n'y pas d'homme intérieur, l'homme est au monde
et c'est dans le monde qu'il se connaît.
Maurice Merleau-Ponty

Anna Semenova Kozak is an independent visual artist born in Kyiv. Photographer. Documentary Film Director, Cinematographer, Editor, Producer. Project Manager.

Anna has a strong interest in dance movement methodologies for personal and communal well-being. Her practical photography and video editing skills, curiosity, and experience as a witness of dance creation processes help reveal three main components of human nature in her artworks: physical body, psychological behavior, and spirituality.

She started taking photos at the age of 13 and is a self-taught photographer.


Anna has a BA in Marketing, from Kyiv National Economic University (2010). She entered Minshar Art College in Tel Aviv, where she studied a course in documentary film production (2020).


She took on a wide range of projects related to lifestyle, fashion, commercial advertisement, and film production. 

In 2022, she began her adventure as a director with the short dance documentary Fragments of Resilience. Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Anna moved to Canada in November 2022.
