Born in the picturesque Ternopil region of Ukraine, Gregory Hlady (HryhoriiHladiy), moved from Lviv to Kyiv upon completing high school and graduatedfrom the Karpenko-Karyi Theater Institute with a degree in acting andcinema. Impelled by an interest in directing, he enrolled in the directors'program at the State Institute of Theatre Arts in Moscow, where he studiedunder the tutelage of the gifted Russian director, Anatoly Vassiliev. As oneof Vassiliev's outstanding graduates he quickly became one of the mostsought-after stage and cinema actors and directors in Eastern Europe.However, Hlady's approach to theater was not well received by the Sovietauthorities. So, in 1989 he left Kyiv for Tallinn, Estonia. In 1990,however, a contract to perform in "Six Characters in Search of an Author"took him to Montreal. His French-language production of Franz Kafka's"Amerika" brought him critical acclaim in both Montreal and Brussels. But itwas his production of Harold Pinter's "The Homecoming" that won him QuebecTheater Critics' Award for best directing in the 1991-1992 season.While directing plays as diverse as Dostoyevsky's "The Idiot" (Lausanne,Switzerland), Ionesco's "Exit the King" and Sophocles' "Electra" (Montreal),Hlady has also conducted master classes in Austria, Belgium, Italy, Germany,Switzerland and Ukraine.
