Hannah Rockey’s stage presence is clear, even as we sit in the print shop of her father, artist Charles Rockey (“Rockey”), on Canon Ave. in Manitou Springs. It’s the clarity and strength of her voice, the punctuations and emphases.
Rockey sits in on the conversation, listening to his daughter’s stories and perspectives. Hannah, 48, grew up in Manitou with Rockey, from the age of 10. The love and mutual admiration between the two of them is visible.
“She’s still my little girl,” Rockey says. “We spent a lot of time together when she was a child.”
But on this day, the focus is to get to know Hannah. She talks with Humanitou about acting and the blurry line between self and character on stage. We talk about truth in fiction and the silver lining of experiencing shame publicly. We also dip into spirituality, faith and mental illness. All with laughs scattered throughout.
