Personal profile

I graduated from the National University of Singapore with a BA(Hons) in Theatre Studies and a Master of Arts (by research). I am currently a lecturer in LASALLE College of the Arts and teach across programmes in the Faculty of Performing Arts. As part of my professional practice, I am also the International Relations Manager and Associate Festival Manager for I Theatre Ltd- a Singapore based theatre company that produces theatre for young people and their families. 

My thesis, 'Growing Up, Building Up and Moving Up- Metaphors of Mobility for Theatre for Young Audiences in a Global City' examines the creative ecologies and cultural topographies of theatre for young audiences in Singapore, in relation to movement and mobility.
