Aenne Pallasca is a photographer, writer and theatre maker based in South Wales. After gaining extensive experience and training in acting and directing during her youth, her practice is now focussed on performance arts.
She works currently as resident photographer and trainee producer for The Other Room (Cardiff), resident photographer of the National Student Drama Festival, and producer for Auch Nicht Schlecht (Bremen).
Recent photography projects include 'we must please and touch' in co-operation with emerging British theatre companies, and 'Monads' about Cardiff's pub theatre The Other Room. Aenne has produced work for and with NoFit State Circus, the National Student Drama Festival (NSDF) and international performing arts festival All Change. Her images were last exhibited in the Index group exhibition, June 2015 in Cardiff. Publishing credits include The Sunday Times, The Guardian, TimeOut, Exeunt, The Stage and NSDF's NoisesOff.
Based on her background in Cultural and Gender Studies, Aenne's writing concentrates on photography and film produced within the lesbian, gay and queer community, and as part of HIV/AIDS activism. The latter was the primary topic of her 2015 dissertation, 'A Happier Ending: Activist art in the wake of AIDS'. Aenne's writing is mainly featured on her blog 'Happier Ending: A Fluid History'.
