Nathaniel Hanula-James

    Acting (2019)

    Originally from the drizzly land of Vancouver, British Columbia, Nathaniel completed a Bachelor of Arts in drama at McGill University before starting his journey at the National Theatre School of Canada. Over the course of his training he tackled a wide range of material, from mask work to heightened classical text, from Caryl Churchill to Morris Panych. He also worked with acclaimed artists and teachers such as Philip Akin (Director, 7 Stories), Brenda Bazinet (naturalism), David Latham (mask and Shakespeare), Ian Watson (Shakespeare), Marla McLean and Graeme Somerville (Shavian period), Jackie Maxwell (Chekhov), and Theatre Replacement’s Maiko Yamamoto (collective creation).

    Nathaniel intends to put down roots in Toronto and Vancouver after graduation. He hopes to collaborate on work which approaches even the most difficult subject matter with unabashed theatricality, irreverence, and joy. He is always scavenging for ways to further his creative practice, and is currently at work on a solo piece about his campy, melodramatic, queer cultural inheritance.
