News and Upcoming Projects
Elin Hilläng was recently granted financing from Region Uppsala in Sweden to produce one of her own short films from a script she started writing three years ago. A project in which she will also be acting.
She's also acting in an upcoming play in collaboration with Uppsala Kvinnojour (The women's shelter in Uppsala), which is written and directed by her friend and coactress Elin Hjert. She's particularly excited about this project because she feels that it contributes to education and improving human rights.
She and Elin Hjert founded a theatre company (non-profit organisation) named Teater Elin (Theatre Elin), which is a feminist and anti-racist organisation with the aim to use art to improve the society we live in, with particular focus on, but not limited to, equality, inclusiveness, empathy, original work and international collaborations.
Elin Hilläng is passionate about acting techniques and teaches acting classes through her company Elin Hilläng Studios, where she focuses extra on classes closest to her heart and passion: Acting for the Camera, Meisner Technique and Individual Coaching (see more).
