"Apart yet together", 2020

During Lockdown the artist created this short piece about our hands. They reached out, they shared, they cared. The hands which had to be encased in gloves or washed several times a day, are celebrated for their strength, in particular for channeling the artists' creative energy.

"The Net Story - Performance", 2022

This dance performance was part of the nets' journey. It tells the story of how she nurtured consumerism and was trapped by it.  The next generation is represented by young dancer Merve Safa Erguner and it was filmed by Yeonguk Choi, her classmates in Central Saint Martins. The original soundtrack was generously composed and played by Devasis Mukherjee, Tabla Maestro, visiting London at the time of production.

"Naughty Netty", 2022

Anita created, illustrated, and narrated a net story for children using the Japanese storytelling method of "Kamishibai".  The plastic string net bags which should become extinct in time, morph into a netasaurus in this story. It threatens life in the seas. It disappears but is re-born as a colourful object the children play with.

In 2023 and '24 Anita is sessions with children in schools in East London. More on this in "Nets Connect".
