Dancing with the Future
Hannah Kickert was born in Austria and trained at the Vienna State Opera Ballet School for nine years. Immediately after graduating with honors (2014) she started working as a corps de ballet member at the Vienna State Opera. Over the course of three years dancing at the well reknown ballet company, she had the chance to participate in various choreographies of Nurejew, Balanchine, Robbins, Ekman, etc..
Due to multiple interests she started studying Political Science at the university of Vienna and proceeds to study at Fernuniversität Hagen. Being a scholarship holder of the European Forum Alpbach 2016 she got in touch with Gloria Benedikt and participated in her next piece InDilemma performing at the EFA 2017 and at the OSCE Ministerial Council of the former Principal Imperial Palace. She then proceeded to study dance in New York with teachers such as Wilhelm Burmann and Marijke Eliasberg, whilst performing at the Viennese Opera Ball in New York or at UNI, a dance event celebrating and showcasing Haitian arts and culture.
In future endeavors she would like to combine politics with dance.
