The Nether

A new sci-fi thriller by Jennifer Haley, directed by Seth Rosin, Artistic Director, takes place in the near future in an interrogation cell and alternately in The Nether, a virtual reality Victorian fantasy world. While many previous productions of The Nether focus on the futuristic aesthetics, we chose to take advantage of the live aspect of theatre – real people in real time, and make the environment as realistic and immersive as possible. This production of The Nether was a Barrymore recommended production.

The Shape of a Bird

The play was initially written by Jean Tay, and then workshopped and further devised by the artistic team, of which I was a part, at a three week workshop in Singapore, followed by a workshop production at the M1 Singapore International Fringe Festival: Art of the Animal. During the workshop period one of the major areas of exploration was how the environment affected the movement and the story, which takes place in both a prison and in the mind of the imprisoned writer. The scenes that took place in the imagination were told visually through shadow and live puppets.

Caught

Caught, my Philadelphia theatrical debut - was three years in the making. My company, 2by4, was initially established because I was motivated to develop Chen’s script in San Francisco in 2012. We spent over a year in workshops and readings which culminated in a week-long Design Development Workshop. The play takes the audience on a disorienting journey that begins in an art gallery that goes through a complete transformation. During the workshop, I experimented with visual storytelling by establishing microenvironments and video landscapes to which the audience moved for different scenes.
