Ng Yuan Ci

Ng Yuan Ci is a theatre practitioner from Malaysia and a graduate of the Drama and Visuals Department (Theatre Major) of New Era University College.

Before deciding to further develop her skills at ITI, she independently practised performance, direction and design. She committed herself to three years of freelance and backstage work, where she performed and participated in puppet shows, children’s plays and urban festivals. She also completed a theatre internship with Sun Son Theatre, a cross-disciplinary performance troupe in Taiwan in 2017.

She has travelled to various parts of China to perform in works such as Wizard of Oz (China-ASEAN (Nanning) Theatre Week), and Dragonland as a shadow puppeteer. In Malaysia, she performed in Hoong Siamang Hoong which was nominated for Best Group Performance at the 16th BOH Cameronian Arts Awards, Don’t Let Writer Know: Mulan Mulan and The Story of Ah Loy (Urbanscapes 2018).

After ITI, Yuan Ci hopes to continue expanding her experience in performing arts no matter where she finds herself. She hopes her work can continue to move, connect, and inspire people while also giving her the opportunity to travel the world.
