Multi-disciplined performer Hannah Tasker-Poland is making her third appearance with Auckland Theatre Company, having stormed through the Cell Block Tango in the 2013 season of Chicago, and revelled within the madness of the Kit Kat Klub in 2010's Cabaret. She is thrilled to be back amongst Michael Hurst and the crew for Lysistrata.
Graduating from Unitec Auckland in 2008 with a BA in Performing & Screen Arts majoring in Contemporary Dance, she has since danced professionally with
various choreographers and companies such as Shona McCullagh, Zoe Schofield (US), Riki von Falken (Germany), WorldOf Wearable Arts, Southern Lights Dance Company, The Loons Circus Theatre Company and The New Zealand Dance Company, touring throughout Australasia and Europe. Film/TV credits include a core-cast role in the 2007 TVNZ drama Rude Awakenings, featured dancer and stunt-performer on Spartacus, stunt performer for The Hobbit and Legend Of The Seeker and a lead acting/stunt-fighting role in three short films with Weta Workshops Wellington, directed by Lee Tamahori. Hannah also choreographs and performs her own unique blend of dark burlesque/fetish/fire/cabaret shows for various high end events across the country.
