About Kristi Hansen
Kristi Hansen is a versatile, gifted actor, dramaturge, producer, and playwright, based in Edmonton. A graduate of the BFA acting program at the University of Alberta, and of the MacEwan University Theatre Arts Program, she’s worked with many theatres in a wide variety of roles.
Her acting credits are extensive, including: Irma Voth, Star Killing Machine, The Hollow, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Christina/Philippe, The Jazz Mother, Pith, The Scent of Compulsion and The Ambassador’s Wives, The Sound of Music, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, King Lear (Cordelia), Romeo and Juliet and Love’s Labour’s Lost, Sweeney Todd – to name a few! Additionally, Kristi participates regularly in the Edmonton International Fringe Festival.
Her one-woman play, Woody (NextFest 2015), is based on her own experience as a leg amputee. It interweaves Hansen’s personal story of amputation with those of landmine survivors in other countries. The show uses both narration and the vocal-mass style of storytelling, which enabled Hansen to play all the characters: from a Rwandan landmine survivor to Bishop Desmond Tutu.
Kristi Hansen is the co-founder and co-Artistic Director of The Maggie Tree. Until 2020, she was the co-Artistic Producer of Azimuth Theatre. She has also been an Ensemble Member of Teatro La Quindicina.
As a strong advocate for women’s roles and positions in theatre, she encourages inclusion in play development and production.
In November 2018, she was named as one of the “Top Forty Under Forty” in Avenue, an Edmonton magazine. In 2021, she was the recipient of the Edmonton Artists’ Trust Fund.
