Lunatics and Poets is a creative studio based in Amsterdam, founded by Anna Jacobs and Hanna van der Meer.
They create work for theatre, film and installation, in which choreography, visual art and fashion merge. Reflecting the current temper of time and making work that is deeply rooted in society. Through movement and fashion, they give form to impermanent identities, emotions and beliefs. They speak a new universal language of gestures, movements and visuals, directly taken from daily life. It is poetic and absurd, light and dark at the same time.
Lunatics and Poets also creates commissioned work for the fashion landscape. As movement directors they represent brand and concept through the human body. They understand branding, camera work and edit and are used to collaborate with filmers, photographers, editors and designers. Not limited to one platform, they build a moving world in film, editorials, campaigns and live events.
