About the Artists

Liew Jia Yi (Performer/Writer)

Liew Jia Yi is an arts practitioner based in Singapore. She has been involved in theatre since her secondary school days and was trained in ARTivate, which is the youth wing of Drama Box, a local theatre company that creates works that raise social awareness and inculcate civic responsibility. She was also a member of Emergency Shelter, which is an artist training and research programme under Emergency Stairs, a Singapore-based international experimental arts group.

She graduated from the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, with a major in Psychology, which provided her an additional perspective into the human experience to support her roles as a performer and an educator. She has also ventured into other roles such as that of a producer, documentation writer, and facilitator.

Her recent performing credits include Exile or Pursuit (InArts) and Offstage 3.0 (Emergency Stairs). Portfolio:

Han Xuemei (Dramaturg)

Han Xuemei (韩雪梅) is a theatre practitioner based in Singapore. She believes in socially engaged practice, and imagines the arts as an integral ingredient for beauty and hope in society. Her artistic practice involves designing experiences, spaces and conditions for people to exercise their right to be creative, disrupt routines and deconstruct paradigms.

Her recent explorations FLOWERS (2019), The Gift (2018) and MISSING: The City of Lost Things (2018) are multi-disciplinary experiences that engage the audience in deeply visceral and personal ways.

She has been a resident artist with theatre company Drama Box since the end of 2012, and most recently co-curated TBC: Workshopping the Future, part of the Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance (ADAM) presented by Taipei Performing Arts Center.
