Hannah Buckley is a performer and maker based in the North of England.

She makes work about human experience from a personal perspective. She is interested in the complexity of human co existence – questioning the way we live, and creating space to imagine new realities. Her work is quietly political and often developed over a relatively long period of time. She often collaborates with artists working across disciplines and has presented work in various contexts and forms. Most recently she has collaborated with multi disciplinary artist Nicola Singh at Baltic39 (Newcastle) and musician Alex De Little at The Hepworth (Wakefield).

Hannah has an ongoing collaboration with her twin sister, a photographer based in NYC, which began (artistically) in 2009. Their collaborative practice combines their individual artistic interests and practices, underpinned by their relationship as twins. Their work is an exploration of the nature of twins from the inside out. It is a discovery, an evolving journey.

Hannah is part of Accumulations, a collective of four artists/curators/academics working primarily in movement, dance and performance. The Accumulations collective have a shared interest and political concern toward creating spaces for ephemeral forms of art, particularly those that are unpolished, uncertain and that embrace experimental processes.
