Below, you'll find my "dancer bio." I'm currently taking a hiatus from my dance and choreographic practices, but (obviously) all this stuff still happened, so you can still read about it.


I'm leaning into writing these days.

Hannah Lieberman is a Brooklyn-based dancer, dancemaker, and writer working with form, feminist theory, and language.

She is curious about architectures of femininity in quotidian movement and dance vocabularies—disrupting, honoring, questioning, and reclaiming these architectures through experiments with rigor, gesture, text, and allusive imagery. Her performance works are often rooted in excavations of language (poems, excerpts of fiction, academic papers) that frame her larger research, which is often autoethnographic. She favors irony, idiosyncrasy, and glimmering clarity in her dances and in her writing.

Hannah graduated from UMass Amherst in 2022 with a BFA in Dance and a minor in English. At UMass and in Five College Dance, she studied modern and postmodern styles with Paul Dennis, Barbie Diewald, Aston K. McCullough, Jenna Riegel, Angie Hauser, Chris Aiken, and Bronwen MacArthur. These lineages and vocabularies supported her trajectory from her early classical training at Boston Ballet School to her current inquisitive and momentum-oriented movement style and creative interests. 

Hannah has presented work at UMass Amherst, Mount Holyoke College, Triskelion Arts, Arts on Site, Green Space, and with the Emerging Artists’ Theatre, and has been supported by the residency program at MOtiVE Brooklyn. She has performed in three iterations of McCullough’s project witch box, a repertory project with Diewald, New Second Line by Camille A. Brown, fourteen student choreography projects, and projects by Willow Green, Nikki Assanti, Julianna Massa, and Caroline Alter.
