About Artem

I want to know what people are thinking and dreaming, what artists are achieving. And I’d like to spend the rest of my life doing so. Specifically, I want to becoming a keen, capable director and a more diverse and effective storyteller. I believe in stories, in their power and importance. Their function in my eyes is two-fold: to entertain and to stimulate. Directing is a way to relate to the world, to take one person’s experience and connect it to others. It’s is the bartering of ideas and stories, passing along one tale in exchange for lasting impressions that inspire and push us. As stories enrich us with new thoughts and new-found courage, they grant us initiative to create.
I’ve always subscribed to the mantra that in theatre you’re only as good as your next project and I think that’s true of all life, too. We are forever building a future. The work of a director is more than a job to me in the way someone might refer to a “job” as a 9-to-5. But in my future, there are no hours. I will never stop.
