Catherine had always harboured a love for performance. While working full-time as a sales and marketing executive, Catherine still found the time to be part of the ensemble in TheatreWorks’ Lift: Love Is Flower The in 2013. That year, she also took part in The Stage Club’s dinner theatre play, Voyage and the year-end pantomime, Little Red Riding Hood, and attended workshops in Suzuki Method and Viewpoints, conducted by Nine Years Theatre.
Spurred on by her dramatic endeavours, Catherine decided to make the leap to full-time theatre by enrolling in ITI in 2014.
After almost three years in ITI, she is grateful to have evolved as a person, and ever more certain of her commitment towards theatre. “It has been a journey back to discovering myself – I came to be aware that I have to truly learn about myself, before I can learn about other forms and people.”
Catherine hopes to pursue work in the Singapore theatre community after ITI. “The training in ITI has prepared me to work in many kinds of theatre.”
