My name is Camille Pavlenko, my pronouns are she/her, and I am a playwright, theatre actor, and writer based in Mohkinstsis/Calgary.
My past works have won and been short-listed for awards from, amongst others, the Playwrights Guild of Canada, Theatre BC, Ottawa Little Theatre, the University of New Hampshire, and the Herman Voaden Prize.
Some of my recent plays include real boi: The Tragedie of Pinocchio in Five Comedic Acts (Calgary Young Peoples’ Theatre), The Hitchhiker (Vertigo Theatre), Go for Gold, Audrey Pham (Lunchbox Theatre, Alberta Theatre Projects), and USS ARTEMIS (co-created with Ali DeRegt), a sci-fi radio play that uses binaural audio to create an immersive experience.
This year, I joined the Creative Writing program at the University of British Columbia, in pursuit of my MFA.
I am also the Artistic Associate at Verb Theatre, and have just begun playing my first video games for adults, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, as a charming hobby to combat my own personal Orc Captain, that is: stress from Grad school.
