Theatre

Myronyuk creates performances and installations that investigate, among other topics, the construction of identity, the differences between public and private image and the effort to retrieve forgotten events from memory. She began a new project, Word Links, in which she asked Ukrainian and US citizens to write anonymous letters describing their way of life, their beliefs and concerns. She brought letters from the Ukraine to the US and delivered them, asking the recipients to answer the letters with their descriptions of daily life here. She played the role of postman, a mediator between two political systems and cultures. She was interested in attending workshops and lectures pertaining to the use of new technologies in performance practice and learning about arts management issues such as fundraising and organizing international projects.
