Belfry@UVic with James Sanders

Artistic Producer, Realwheels Theatre


James Sanders is the founding Artistic Director of Realwheels Theatre. In 1998, James graduated as valedictorian earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre from Simon Fraser University. His professional career includes acting, writing, and producing for the stage and screen. Quadriplegic from a spinal cord injury, James is committed to positive and accurate representations of disability in the media. His goal is to represent characters with a disability in stories where issues of disability are not the central source of conflict. James lives and works in Vancouver. 


 This fall, the Belfry@UVic Series at UVic’s Department of Theatre has moved online for Zoom conversations with Canadian theatre artists. Now in its third year, this amazing collaboration with The Belfry Theatre connects our students with playwrights, directors, designers, actors and more. Conversations will be hosted by Dr. Sasha Kovacs, a theatre history professor and practicing artist.
