Made A Shadow Puppet Show 'The Cat's Dream' In Bali. Visiting Bali is part of the course in East 15 Acting School MFA Theatre Directing program. In May of 2017, I stayed in Bali for 1 month for briefly learning and exploring Balinese Topeng mask performance and Wayang shadow puppetry. I wrote, designed, created this short shadow puppet show for 2-4 years old children with group of Balinese local artists, musicians and professional puppeteers. Balinese shadow puppets made by leathers, I made a gecko and a cockroach by their traditional technic. In 'The Cat's Dream' show, I created a fantasy world on the air of Bali in a cat's dream. A cat is really afraid of geckos, which are involved in Balinese people's daily life that they believe that if gecko makes voice during people having dialogue it means that the gecko approve what they're saying.
'Holy Crab!' a new play written by Yi Zhu, directed by Ching Hsiang Yang was performed in Well Spring Theatre Taipei, Taiwan in the April of 2016. I worked as an assistant director in this project. On the Playwright Yi Zhu's website the description of the play is 'A dark comedy that explores the multi cultural reality and identities of many people living in America through the crazy journey of a Chinese Mitten Crab, a sea creature who has unfortunately been declared an “invader” by the New York State Department of Conservation, but nonetheless seeks to come to America and be treated like everyone else. He is, after all, considered a delicacy in his homeland.'
