An Uta Hagen Lecture/Demonstration
Prof. Kelly Handerek (University of Regina)
Monday 27th November, 18.30 to 20.30
“Through the consideration of Uta Hagen’s vision the human technique of each individual actor can express a detailed and living understanding of self in the character. Examined and recreated self-observation allows the actor an awareness to awaken a relaxed and truthful connection to craft”
Kelly Handerek trained with Uta Hagen at the HB Studio in New York. He is an actor, teacher and playwright whose work travels between new play development, musical theatre and classic text. He was formerly Artistic Director of The Grand Theatre in London, Ontario. As an actor, he moves from ensemble parts to leading roles across major regional theatres and independent companies, and enjoys teaching master-classes and adjudicating in Acting, Voice and Directing. As a director his work has included productions for Stratford Ontario, The Banff Centre, the National Arts Centre (Ottawa), and The Globe and Grand Theatres.
