Anna Mendelssohn (born 1976 in Vienna) studied acting in Great Britain. 

Since 2004 she has been an ensemble member of the company toxic dreams and has performed in more than 35 of their productions. She has performed also with a number of other choreographers and directors (such as  Ictus Ensemble, Mara Mattuschka, Anna Maria Nowak, Superamas, André Turnheim, Oleg Soulimenko, David Mayaan,…), acted in films (of Miriam Bajtala, Michaela Schwentner, Thomas Marschall, Angela Summereder, ...) and works as a voice-over actress.

In her own performance pieces (Cry Me A River, Here and Now, What?, Feminism and the Bauchgefühl, Amazon – River Deep, Free Speech? !,…) her special interest lies in an ongoing exploration of language and a close listening to the forces and mechanisms of it’s employment in private and political contexts. 

Since 2016 she works on movies and movie scripts.

The movie Ordinary Creatures (2020) and her performance pieces have toured festivals throughout Europe and beyond and and won several prizes.
