As an energetic little girl, Liz Sergeant Tan was only ever still when she was an enraptured audience member at her late mother’s [Christina Sergeant’s] mime shows. Since then, she's been hooked on theatrical energy.
She believes strongly in the communal enterprise and the tremendous power of theatre, and hopes to devise worthy shows of substance and magical spirit for both children and adults.
Liz studied theatre at the School of the Arts, and was part of the first graduating cohort in 2012. She has performed twice at the Arts House (Manifest, January 2014 and Floating Bones, July 2014), and has acted in short films produced by Tisch Asia students. She also entertains at children's birthday parties, bringing the joy of theatre there.
After ITI, she hopes to work in the Singapore theatre community, before eventually seeking more specialized training. “I will stay and work in Singapore for a year; in puppetry, children’s theatre and mask work. Then, I hope to get more training. ITI has opened my body and mind so that I can pursue many things.”
