Drama Box Resident Artist
Han Xuemei is an arts practitioner who is curious about the possibilities of participation in artistic processes. She is keen on creating conditions and frameworks within which people exercise agency and make choices that deliberately intervene in their lives and disrupt their routines. Currently a resident artist with Drama Box, her most recent exploration MISSING: The City of Lost Things (2018) is a 4-hour introspective experience that invited the audience to participate in a journey to re-encounter lost connections. She has also co-created a few of the company's socially-engaged projects, such as IgnorLAND of its Time (2014), SCENES: Forum Theatre (2015)and IgnorLAND of its Loss (2016). She has directed and facilitated some of the company's theatre for young people, including forum theatre plays 40 Strokes (2013), sixpointnine (2015), as well as adaptations of Kuo Pao Kun's plays – Silly Little Girl and Funny Old Tree (2014) and Kopitiam (2016).
