I began my professional career in theatre as an actress and trained at Theatre Nepean. Early acting credits include Company B, Bell Shakespeare and many others.
My first experience of directing was with Epicentre Theatre, with a Titus Andronicus laced with contemporary text and East Asian vocal and physical influences. I produced Macbeth for Quasimodo, directed by Gareth Boylan. In 2001, I left for the UK playing Juliet in Romeo and Juliet for Mu-Lan Theatre followed by several roles touring for the UK based international touring company Yellow Earth Theatre.
Yellow Earth encouraged my directorial ambitions and I participated in YET and the Young Vic’s extended series of workshops led by Rufus Norris, David KS Tse and Matthew Dunster. I directed Benjamin Yeoh’s production of Yellow Gentlemen at Oval House.
I produced, developed and directed Journeys by Rosaline Ting at The Ambassador’s Wimbledon Studio. Following this, I directed and developed Rosaline Ting’s play for children A Girl Named Shining Brightly for Polka Theatre’s Playgrounding season.
I continue to write original work for young people and a highlight of my teaching involves devising plays with participants.
