Program Notes

Activated Arts #4 (Jan 2021)

  • Value Shift | Anthea talks with artist Hanna Cormick. In 2015 Hanna Cormick was living in Paris and working as a physical performer with a background in dance, circus and interdisciplinary arts. Now Hanna is a wheelchair user and due to a number of acute allergic reactions she spends much of her time at home and must when a full-face mask when in public. But her arts practice has deepened and the values behind her work have radically shifted. This month we spend a full episode talking to this remarkable artist. https://www.hannacormick.com/
