Hannah Boutilier:
I've worked with local community theatre companies like Theatre Inconnu and Langham court for about 8 years now. This work has been a combination of backstage costume, dressing, props, make-up and mask work, and onstage  acting, storytelling and dance. I've also studied with Shakespearian texts with Mark Hellman, a teacher known for his use of movement and voice play to help connect the actor to the actions. And created pieces in the Belfry 101 Intensive program at the Belfry Theatre using play building techniques. During a year of training at George Brown Theatre school in Toronto I took storytelling, speech, and voice as well as acting, neutral masque and improve. Movement classes at George Brown included explorations in Authentic Movement, Sensory Awareness techniques and many more. Grew up in a tight knit home-schoolers community & gained facilitation skills by attending many of the Power of Hope projects and camps.
