Athletes of the Heart was founded by Anna Furse in 2003. Devoted to transgressing artistic, cultural and geographical boundaries, the company collaborates and co-produces internationally. Each project responds to the specific conditions in which it is being produced - seeking opportunities to connect a process to a production over time - evolving a dramaturgy through physical training and research, focusing on the raw presence of the performer and an essential, poetic and vibrant scenography. The company has created works for hospitals, science centres, art centres and theatres and has used cyber space innovatively for international collaboration.
