A poem of human nature.
Valentyn Korotkevych. Originated from Ukraine, settled in Toronto, Ontario as an international student. Been enrolled in local college, where he studied under "Computer Science" major for a year before quitting.
By the age of 18 discovered his passion for art. First lucky encounters of local acting classes and independent theatre productions became a real eye-opener. Digging deep and exploring the physicality & tonality of globally known and established acting techniques (Meisner exercise specifically) , brought him into the land of writing and eventually directing his own work. First project includes "Tea?" which won awards at: NYC Indie FIlm Awards (New York), LA Shorts Awards (Los Angeles), Mindfield Film Festival Los Angeles (Los Angeles), Canada Shorts - Award of Merit. As well as trying his play-writing skills on putting on his first play "Contagious" at Toronto Fringe.
Current project "Paradise. Death. Mars" speaks in experimental, poem based language. Primary discussing the issue of Human-Environment co-existence and nature.
As it goes (aka should go) my one and only personal concern is to stay inspired & hope to leave a mark and make the nudge of improvement. To recognize the subjects of natural life-flow, that is tragically, progressively falling, considering our present state of social mind. To tell stories that matter. To audiences, who care. The one & only accuse we are left to cope with is an overwhelming fear of unknown upon us.
