Christine HamelChristine Hamel (she/her/hers) is an actor, voice coach, director, and writer; her primary area of research is the social, political and ethical aspects of the embodied voice, and the development of intersectional anti-oppression practices in voice training pedagogy. She currently serves as Head of the BFA Acting Program at Boston University School of Theatre where she is an Assistant Professor of Voice & Acting. Christine founded the Femina Shakes Initiative at BU, committed to feminist retellings of Shakespeare exploring a wide range of gender identities unconstrained by the limitations of conventional gender narratives. She is a Designated Linklater Voice Teacher, and holds a Teacher Training Certificate in the Michael Chekhov acting technique. Upcoming projects: she'll be co-teaching a weekend-long workshop through MICHA in September called The Gesture of Breath: Chekhov Technique and the Voice, she's in the early stages of directing-devising a solo show with an actor on the politics of breath, and she's slated to dialect/voice coach Fires in the Mirror (Lyric Stage) later this season (COVID-permitting). Lastly, her co-authored book Sounding Bodies: Identity, Inequality, and the Voice will be published in late 2020/early 2021 by Bloomsbury/Methuen Drama.
