"Time Out, New York"

“Vocalist Victoria Hanna held the room rapt with her acrobatic voice, at turns lovely, haunting and frightening.” “All you really need to know is that Victoria Hanna is something else… - Time Out, New York


"TBA BLOGGER PICA PORTLAND"

If you weren’t there to see it you missed something very special. So markedly different from everything else, so striking and rare.”..
Victoria is a mystic.
- Annie Robb


"The Program Australia-"

Amazing voice…Hanna works entirely from the mouth.. it’s this powerful guttural energy that rises form her belly. She channels these bizarre and beautiful ghosts, and becomes them entirely. - Lisa Greenaway

Bio

Victoria Hanna was born into a spiritual, religious community in Jerusalem, in which the language and elocution of prayer is valued above all other arts. Much of the inspiration for the current work comes from Jerusalem itself, where the overlapping of past and present, ancient and modern is at its very core.
She enacts in her work a unique presentation of sacred Hebrew texts, prayers and spirituals, in an entirely modern context that integrates theatre, music, spoken word and video.

The Hebrew texts Victoria Hanna includes in her artistic work are dealing with language and letters as a creative force.
The Order of the Creation of the Embryo ,Song of Songs, the Book of Creation (attributed to Abraham) and the writings of the Rabbi Abraham Aboulafia. Victoria work setting these texts against a modern backdrop; their organic juxtaposition emerging from structures and codes inherent in the texts that are reminiscent of the modern, hi-tech world. Her work also integrates translations and original texts in languages such as English, Persian, Czech, Arabic and Gibberish.

Victoria has participated in major performing arts festivals, received numerous scholarships and artist residencies. She has had cover stories in major newspapers and TV programs internationally and local. Among Victoria Hanna’s numerous performance-tours; The opening of the New Delhi Sacred Music Festival 2003 for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, festivals and venues in the USA, India, France, UK, Germany, Holland, Ukraine, Mongolia, Japan, Israel, Poland, Mexico, Melbourne International Arts festival- Australia, Philadelphia Live Arts, PICA TBA festival in Portland, Chicago world music festival, Stimmen festival Germany, Singapore Performing Arts festival and many more..
