My name is Anthony C. Accardi and I’m a third year student in Humber’s Theatre Performance program.
Humber is a unique training conservatory that provides a large variety of disciplines to train in, taught by some of the best coaches and teachers that have worked (and still are working) in the industry.
Humber emphasizes that what we are training for is to discover and develop our individual voices and visions as artists, so that we may contribute to creating innovative and invigorating Theatre. Humber also teaches us the importance of collaborative creation and the powerful impact it has in the community.
What I like about Humber is that we are encouraged to explore and discover beyond what inspires and interests us as artists in order to grow and sharpen our vision and voices.
What I’ve learned while training at Humber is to not be afraid to take risks in everything I do. To take charge and allow myself to get messy in my creation process, because some of the best work made is when there are many obstacles and failures overcome in order to find the greatness in the work.
I am an actor, singer, writer and musician. Thanks to the training at Humber; when I leave, I will be ready to create work that will resonate among many and, hopefully, throughout the years.
