Anna Sycamore DeMers is an acting, movement and ensemble theatre educator. She is head of the Theatre Program at Middlesex County College in Edison, NJ and Adjunct Movement Specialist at Kean University in Union, NJ.
She approaches theatre making and teaching from multiple perspectives as a director, dancer, choreographer, playwright and new media designer. Her pedagogical practice is based on developing the total actor: body, voice and mind through psychophysical methods. This pedagogy is influenced by and centered on her experience in the practices and theories of the great master teachers Jacques Lecoq, Jerzy Grotowski and her direct training with Kari Margolis (of the Margolis Method). Her course work also includes training in body awareness through the lens of Laban/Bartenieff, Viewpoints and contemplative practices such as yoga and meditation.
She has a Master’s of Fine Arts from Sarah Lawrence College with a focus in directing and movement, and her B.A. in Theatre from Rollins College. She serves as an Artistic Associate for the Jersey City Theatre Center where she assists in the curation process for both dance and theatre performance.
