The PAD is proud to present - ANU London: Expectations!
ANU is a gathering of established and emerging artists for an improvised interdisciplinary artistic performance. Artists gather for a series of meetings that lead to a performance of guided improvisation.
Each ANU event has been a live exercise in unity through spontaneous creation, artistic freedom, intense listening, and group responsibility and trust. This led us to choose the theme for this ANU event - Expectations, the concept at the heart of artistic improvisation, creation, and a concept that has been central to The PAD since its inception.
Expect the first ever ANU event held in Europe to exceed your expectations.

**Further information about ANU**
ANU was founded by Iraqi-Canadian Visual Artist Jabbar Al Janabi in 2001 and was inspired by the story of the Sumerian Sky God, Anu, whose responsibility was to illuminate the other Gods’ creative powers to create the universe. That idea evolved among the destructive flashes and residues of the Gulf War that Al Janabi experienced in his hometown of Baghdad in the 1990s. What if – in that moment of explosive light – the result could be pure creation, instead of pure destruction?
