STORIES OF THE WAR. MONOLOGUES
Hi, I am Vlada Belozorenko, a Ukrainian theater director and teacher. In 2017, together with like- minded people, we founded in Kyiv theater- studio “11”. It’s a creative place for adults of various professions, who explore themselves at acting courses, free themselves from constraints, develop a habit of ecological communication and reveal their emotions.
“11” is a place that I love with all my heart, because extraordinary and special people gather there. We have taught about 1,000 students, 8 directors work here; we do not only theatrical, but also many social and charitable projects. But after the start of a full-scale war in Ukraine on February 24, 2022, our life as we knew it, ended — we didn’t know what to do tomorrow and whether it would come at all.
