New York, NY
I am a theater designer and visual artist. I believe that design is my mode of communication. It allows me to explore the tension between the intellectual idea and dramatic gesture. I approach the process of design as a visual dramaturg.
Being born in Hong Kong and raised in Singapore, I am interested in creating pluralistic worlds in the theater and finding a way to bring a transnational perspective to projects. I enjoy the highly collaborative process of designing for new work and devised work. I often seek to queer the work subliminally. As a designer, I seek to transgress playfully. I bring agency, presence, and a multi-disciplinary attitude to all my projects.
Outside of the theater, you can find me swimming, giving tarot readings, writing poetry and practicing reiki. I believe in the transformative and healing power of ritual and somatic practices, and that sensitivity nourishes my work in creative spaces.
Proud member of USA 829, Wingspace Theatrical Design. Formerly on theatre design faculty at NYU-Playwrights Horizons Theater School.
