Statement

Rather than stories with a beginning, middle and end, Anya is interested in creating worlds for an audience to feel like they are a part of.​ Her work focuses on making audiences feel comfortable enough to submit themselves to being fully immersed in a narrative or story-world.

Anya works across and combines a range of mediums including theatre, audio, virtual reality, augmented reality, social games, film & other transmedia content, as well as fine art and illustration.

Anya has recently worked as part of Limina Immersive hosting VR sessions as part of the UK's first cultural VR Theatre, in addition to freelance work with companies such as Crossover Labs, Curious Directive, Playlines and Exit Productions. She also helped to curate the VR strand of Encounters Film Festival as part of her work with Limina Immersive.
