Hannah Shakti Bühler studied at Laban Trinity College in London, obtaining her BA(Hons) Dance Theatre in 2006. Her performance practice has led her to work between others with Retina Dance Co. in UK, Centro Coreografico Galego in Spain and T.r.a.s.h. DansPerformanceGroup in Holland. As choreographic assistant she works with Cisco Aznar at Opera de Lausanne, Opera de Dijon, Circus School Fratellini in Paris and FolkOperan Stockholm.

 

In 2015 she graduates from MACoDE (Master in Contemporary Dance Education) at the Hochschule für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt am Main. As part of her studies she nourishes her interest in audience development formats and participates at Tanz Im August 2014, co-leading Physical Introductions and Audience Circles. Thanks to a postgraduate grant from the Hessian Theater Academy she follows her interest in documentation processes and publishes Moving Thinking Capture, A choreographic Toolbox on the work of Ivàn Pérez. In 2016 she assists the creation process of Safe Places by Anouk Van Dijk and Falk Richter at the Schauspiel Frankfurt and follows further studies on Anouk Van Dijk's Countertechnique at Chunky Move in Melbourne.

 

Currently she is teaching at the acting department at the Hochschule für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt. As part of her teaching, she researches transfers from somatic practices to performative states, striving towards a sensitive and playful physicality. In the context of the acting department, she also co-teaches with Marc Prätsch, investigating the sensitive spaces between pre-verbal, verbal and post-verbal communication. She also recently began the Body Mind Centering® Somatic Movement Education Program, to deepen her interest in embodied anatomy and developmental movement repatterning. Hannah is also a Certified Gyrokinesis® Trainer and teaches regularly actors, dancers and musicians as part of the MSBL/KIT (Musikspezifische Bewegungslehre / Körper im Theater) at the HfMDK, Frankfurt. 

 

In 2015 she co-founds Hicks&Bühler, a choreographic collaboration with Laura Hicks. In 2017 they premiere their first choreographic collaboration Reaching Towards... as part of Junge Choreographische Positionen, Frankfurt am Main. In March 2018 they premiered their new group choreography Der Klumpen at FrankfurtLAB. 

Hannah also performs in the work of Compagnie Bertha (Switzerland/La Reunion).
