Kyungseo Min is a Montreal based writer and performer. Born in Seoul, South Korea, she immigrated to Calgary, Alberta when she was six years old. In Calgary, she met a wonderful mentor who introduced her to the world of theatre.
She continued her education with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre at the University of Southern Californias School of Dramatic Arts, studying with Mary-Joan Negro, John DeMita, Oliver Mayer, Paula Cizmar, and Luis Alfaro.
While in Los Angeles, she trained for three years with Oguri, one of the foremost exponents of the Japanese dance butoh, at his Body Weather Laboratory. She continues her training in Montreal, offering workshops and classes.
Continuing her exploration in movement and Oriental forms of story telling, she trained at Kyoto Art Centre's Traditional Theatre Training program for three consecutive years in noh and nihonbuyou (traditional Japanese dance). Last year, she began her apprenticeship with noh mask maker, Yasuo Miichi.
As a writer, her plays have been workshopped and staged in Canada and Italy. Several of her poems have been published by charity publications as well.
Recently, she has been accepted into Pixelles Game Writing Group 3 and is working on branching out into the world of video game writing.
