Born in Kolomyia/Ukraine in 1985.
Victoria Myronyuk is an interdisciplinary artist, performer and theater maker. She has a degree in Theory of Culture from the National University Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in Kyiv/Ukraine, also completing a Master’s degree program in Stage Practice and Visual Culture in Madrid/Spain and a post-graduate degree in Advanced Performance and Scenography Studies in Brussels/Belgium. She is based temporarily in a Polish village as a result of the war in Ukraine.
In recent years, she has been researching the topic of rituals, their boundaries and potential for constructing new forms of (stage) relationships between participants. Myronyuk tends to reconstruct/deconstruct ritualistic structures in favor of using them to create new performative practices, which promote closeness among participants, deepen trust and facilitate the sharing of experiences and stories. In her artistic practice, the intimacy of performances as well as scenographic asceticism are core features that contribute to an immersive experience of being both with others and with oneself.
Myronyuk’s recent works include The Wake (Poznan/Poland, 2022); The Shelter (Poznan, 2021); The Archeology of One Apartment (2021, online); In Search of Agatha (2020, online) and Imaginary Itineraries of Lviv (2019, Lviv/Poland). She has also presented her pieces at the Malta Festival, Close Strangers Festival, ParadeFest, Gogolfest, the Zürcher Theater Spektakel and the Festival Belluard Bollwerk International, among others.
