We are delighted to partner with Drama School Mumbai in our first-ever collaboration to present the Uta Hagen Masterlass with HB Teacher Carol Rosenfeld.
This online workshop is for advanced actors and offers an oasis of grounded and embodied physical solo practice. The Uta Hagen Masterclass with Carol Rosenfeld is a rare opportunity for Indian theatre practitioners to delve into the self-reflective, ‘object-driven’ exercises that defined the legendary teaching of Uta Hagen. In a sense, this workshop can help theatre performers to ground themselves both on and off-stage/screen – and establish a ‘riyaaz’, as it were.
What’s more, this is the most cost-effective course in Uta Hagen’s techniques you’re likely to find thanks to the digital medium. With limited intake, it offers an intimate, one-on-one, safe, non-performative space to interact with Carol, and establish a fluid, flexible routine.

- Identify the “work” at hand and find ease and clarity in your process
- Define your obligation to the role, and explore substitutions that lead to choices that are specific and personal
- Hone your ability to reflect upon your work
- Create circumstances that lead to truthful behavior
- Own your voice and points of view, and open yourself up to unexpected discoveries
