Singapore-born theatre practitioner Wang Meiyin, gives insights into her experiences as a producer on Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower as well as the global arts festival circuit.
A familiar face on New York City’s theatre scene, Wang was previously co-director of the city’s highly-regarded Under the Radar Festival, an annual festival by non-profit The Public Theatre. She is currently the director of La Jolla Playhouse’s Without Walls festival, a site-specific and experiential city-wide performance festival in San Diego.
Now based in the Bay Area as a producer and curator, Wang works on a prolific range of theatre projects and sits on the board of NYC-based Theatre Communications Group. Having grown up in Singapore until she left to study at Yale University, Wang continues to maintain links to her home through her role as associate artist with Singapore Repertory Theatre. She holds a B.A. in Political Science and Theatre Studies from Yale, and a M.F.A. in Directing from Columbia University.
