Allie Hankins is a Portland-based performer who makes works that toy with the destabilization of persona through uncanny physicality, wry wit, labyrinthine logic, and skillfully layered imagery, all while trying to suppress her contentious eagerness to please. Her current collaborators include Physical Education (Lu Yim, keyon gaskin, and Taka Yamamoto), Rachael Dichter, Morgan Ritter, and Rose Mackey. Most recently, Hankins has performed with Julien Prévieux, Morgan Thorson, Tahni Holt, and Suniti Dernovsek. She has been an Artist in Residence at the Djerassi Resident Artist Program, the Robert Rauschenberg Residency, and the New Expressive Works Residency at Studio 2.
