Hannah (neé Millest) is a performance maker, creating interactive installations, one on one encounters and digital performances. The form of her work may fluctuate from high-tech digital installations to very basic one to one encounters, but her focus is always on creating an experience for an audience member. She concentrates on interactivity, between an audience member and either an interface or herself.
She seeks to produce work that directly engages people both physically and emotionally, striving to give them an experience that will impact lives post-performance. Many of her past performances have resembled a kind of therapy, asking audience members to engage in personal discussion and disclosure.
Hannah has worked artists and organisations including: Tempting Failure, Fantasy High St, Home for Waifs and Strays, Yoko Ishiguro, Paulina Lara Franco, 30 bird, Rob Young, and 51zero; and has performed and had work shown at a various venues including: Battersea Arts Centre, Centre for Creative Collaboration, Cambridge Junction, Cockpit Theatre, Tate Britain, Rochester Visitor Centre, The Island Bristol, Kensington Olympia, CLF Art Cafe and NeuHoch Neue Berlin.
Hannah studied Drama and Performance Studies at London South Bank University where she gained a First Class Honours Degree and was awarded the Course Director’s award for Outstanding Achievement before continuing her studies to gain a Masters Degree with Merit in Contemporary Performance Making at Brunel University.
