Kyungseo Min

theatre

Kyungseo Min is a Korean-Canadian playwright and performer currently based in Montreal. After completing a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre at the University of Southern California, she pursued her passion for physical theatre and Japanese traditional theatre by training in Body Weather Laboratory in Venice and Nihonbuyo with the Kyoto Arts Centre. As a writer and Third Culture Kid, her goal is to create a distinctive style of theatre blending Western and Eastern philosophies, weaving text, movement, and symbolism into a cohesive whole. She strives to tell stories that break linear structure and find drama not only in action and dialogue, but also in stasis. She dares to write plays that remove the audience from reality and transport them into a metaphysical realm where a single gesture can slow down their heartbeat and a symbol can make them stop in their seats and feel what is underneath the banalities of the everyday.
