Konstantin Kamenski

Director London

My name is Konstantin Kamenski, I'm a British director of Russian origin. I have graduated from the Russian Academy of Drama Arts (GITIS) as a Drama and Opera Director and used to run my own fringe company in Moscow from 1999 to 2004. I’ve got over 12 years of experience in broadcasting, video production and media, most recently employed by Sony Pictures, and now I’m bringing in this creative and multimedia experience to my theatre works. In 2016, I’ve completed MA in Advanced Theatre Practice at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Now I’m an emerging Director and Video Designer, an Artistic Director of 274 Theatre Productions, also working with other theatre companies, and I’m giving lectures in Russian Theatre at Goldsmith University of London.
