Hannah Silva (Grande Bretagne)

Hannah Silva, poète, performeuse et auteur dramatique britannique est née en 1983. Son travail sur langage, la voix peut évoquer les précurseurs de la poésie sonore phonatoire comme Henri Chopin. Ses recueils et pièces radiophoniques ou théâtrales ont reçu un excellent accueil critique. Elle travaille à un nouveau spectacle solo, Schlock !, mixant langage des signes et cut-up sonore de poèmes de Kathy Acker comme d’extraits de 50 nuances de Grey !
