Anna Renzenbrink

Anna (she/her) brings to ITS over 20 years of diverse experience as a performer, teacher, director and coach with a keen focus on narrative and encouraging students to be generous, empathetic and self-aware.

Anna trained with Impro Melbourne as a member of their Ensemble for 13 years, before joining The Big HOO-HAA prior to moving to Sydney in 2016. Since joining ITS, Anna has directed two successful Sydney Fringe seasons of A Streetcar Named Hot Tin Menagerie and a book club-inspired format called Prose & Cons.

Anna has performed and taught at festivals in Wurzburg, Amsterdam, Austin, Phoenix, Wellington, Canberra, Hobart and Brisbane and has learned multiple styles of improv over the years, with a particular love for character and historical genre-based one act plays.

Improv loves: The delightful rush of feeling connected to my fellow cast members and the audience in a never-to-be-repeated moment!

Comedy heroes: Dawn French & Jennifer Saunders

Offstage: My other hobby is my full-time job in Dispute Resolution investigating complaints for a very large life insurance company. But I also love learning about historical periods and visiting historical houses!

Favourite improv advice: “Your obvious is your talent” — Dan O’Connor



“Anna took our monoscene from drab to fab!”
