SIFA 2018 | In Conversation with Wang Meiyin (United States/Singapore)
Singapore-born Wang Meiyin, a producer on Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower and a veteran on the global arts festival circuit, gives insights into her work as a producer on the production and as an international theatre practitioner.
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 internationally. Having grown up in Singapore until she left to study at Yale University, Wang continues to maintain professional links to her home through her role as associate artist with Singapore Repertory Theatre. She holds a BA in Political Science and Theater.
