Hanna Cormick is a performance artist with a background in physical theatre, dance, circus and interdisciplinary art. She is a graduate of Ecole Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq and Charles Sturt University's Acting degree.
Cormick's practice has spanned many genres and continents over twenty years, including as a founding member of Australian interdisciplinary art-science group Last Man To Die, one half of Parisian cirque-cabaret duo Les Douleurs Exquises, and as a mask artist in France and Indonesia.
Her recent works include The Mermaid (Sydney Festival 2020; Ainslie & Gorman 2018; Art, Not Apart 2018), Canary (worldwide locations for Climate Change Theatre Action 2019), Little Monsters (Art, Not Apart 2019) and the current work-in-progress theatre work Zebracorn. In 2018 she was a finalist for the National Award for Disability Leadership (Arts) and the ACT Chief Minister’s Inclusion Award (Young Leader).
Her current practice is a reclamation of body through radical visibility.
