Hannah De Meyer

Hannah De Meyer (b. 1988) graduated in Performance from the Maastricht Academy of Performing Arts in 2015. She writes, performs, directs and publishes. Her work relates to the ecological-feminist tradition and investigates the connections between femininity, ecology and decolonization. She fuses language and movement into a quirky, hybrid theatrical idiom. Levitations is a mesmerizing trip through the hills and vales of De Meyer’s imagination. The recent new skin is an overwhelming feminist and ecological statement.

Hannah De Meyer graduated with the exhibitionistic piece Solace. With it, she won two awards for young playwrights, the TAZ-Jong Theaterschrijfprijs 2015 in Belgium and the Artes Jongtheaterschrijfprijs in the Netherlands. Since then she made Vast glowing empty page and recently, together with Jesse Vandamme, ÜBERDRAMATIK, an ‘exciting exploration of the universality of loss’. Hannah De Meyer writes and directs. In her work, she seeks the extremes, from the tranquil and meditative to the shocking. In reference to her Levitations (2017) critic Steven Heene wrote in TAZette: “A voluptuously winding trip through the hills and vales of De Meyer’s rich imagination.”

For Love at First Sight III, Hannah De Meyer made a production called new skin, inspired by her admiration for a young generation of antiracist writers, economists and climate activists. De Meyer not only feels a bond with their anger and indignation, but also the fond determination with which they create alternative stories. Different stories about what success is, what prosperity is, and what comprises a thriving society.
