The Uta Hagen Institute at HB Studio Launches One-Week Hagen Actor’s Lab Online

The Uta Hagen Institute at HB Studio has launched a one-week actor training program online. Applications are currently being accepted to the Hagen Actor’s Lab Online, which will be held over Zoom, January 3-10, 2021.

The Hagen Actor’s Lab Online is an intensive week of online artistic practice and immersion into legendary actress and acting teacher Uta Hagen’s exercises and approach to script analysis. Offered by HB Studio, where Hagen taught her professional classes for over 50 years, the Lab provides grounded and embodied physical solo practice for the actor.

The Hagen Actor’s Lab Online offers an intensive training week for actors to maintain continuity in their practice at a time when much work in the industry has been interrupted. Actors from across the U.S. and abroad that are seeking an immersive training program are encouraged to apply.

The program is led by Carol Rosenfeld, founder of the Uta Hagen Institute at HB Studio and a student of Uta Hagen.

Rosenfeld will lead acting technique, Mark Nelson will guide script analysis and scene study, and Theresa McElwee will provide vocal exercises. Breaks and guided warm-ups will be offered throughout each Lab session to give actors a break from their screens to refresh, breathe, ground and recenter.
