Anne Cecelia Haney is a Brooklyn-based director, musician, translator, and urban agriculture student. Blending a text-based approach with a surrealist aesthetic, she collaborates with artists from a variety of different mediums to make rituals that explore our relationship to urban spaces, borderlines between parallel worlds, the wildness of the female body, and the notion of entropy. She is drawn to creative work that provokes questions rather than providing answers, and incorporates the audience as a meaningful entity.
Anne is currently a Resident Director at the Flea Theater, under the mentorship of Niegel Smith, and the Literary Manager of Old Sound Room Performance Ensemble. She has made performances at The Bushwick Starr, JACK, The Tank, Dixon Place, Rising Circle Theater Collective, Cloud City/The Freight Project, The Brick Theater, IRT, The Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Short Play Festival, Emerging Artists Theater, Columbia University, and in various warehouses and living rooms across the US. Her production of Ellen McLaughlin's The Trojan Women was nominated for a 2017 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Adaptation.
Assistant directing includes the world premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning opera Angel's Bone at the 2015 Prototype Festival and Taylor Mac's A 24-Decade History of Popular Music at St. Ann's Warehouse, as well as productions for BAM’s Next Wave Festival and Atlantic Theater Company.
