Hana Erdman is a U.S. American artist based in Stockholm and Berlin working within the field of dance and choreography. Her work is characterized by the ephemeral nature of thought and gesture amidst a formalist approach to the body. Central in her work is the notion of companionship as an orientation and organizing principle, with which she explores movement, thought, energy, performativity, and our relationship to community, environment, and more than human creatures. She creates works across a wide range of kinds; namely dance, performance, social choreography, installation and video. While exploring the invisible, metaphysical, sensorial and transformative, her artworks produce spaces of public intimacy and sensitivity, proposing the practice of being together as a creative act in itself. Her work is presented internationally in the contexts of galleries, museums, theaters, churches, and art festivals. Together with Louise Dahl she is engaged in a long-term research and collaboration which has resulted in several dance creations. She is an educator and mentor at various international centers and programs in Europe. She has a Masters Degree in Dance/Authorship from the higher educational Center for Dance at the College of Fine Arts, Berlin (Universität der Künste Berlin).
