Amalie Hannibal Petri
Amalie Hannibal Petri (b. 1996) has worked in different artistic fields throughout her life.
She started performing at the age of seven as a part of a children’s elite drama school, Eventyrteatret, in Copenhagen. For the next eight years she studied drama, dance and singing - both as a part of an ensemble and as a solo performer.
As a teenager she began to explore her own voice. Soon she was writing her own songs, playing concerts and recording music with various bands. She has been doing so ever since.
In the spring of 2018 she studied at the LungA art school in Iceland. Here she began to combine the many different forms of artistic expression in her life - beginning her journey as an interdisciplinary artist.
It’s safe to say that a substantial part of Amalie’s creativity consists of exploring the energies that exist between creative fields and which can inspire fresh or unexpected modes of creative output. This has resulted in her solo project, Polly, where she composes and articulates her musical vision through fusing various performing arts disciplines such as dance, dramaturgy and scenography.
In late 2018, Amalie began studying at the Music Performance programme at the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen, majoring as a singer.
