Ang Xiao Ting is a freelance Singapore-based hyphenated practitioner – a performance-maker, movement-based performer, actor, educator, dramaturg and interdisciplinary collaborator. Her creative practice is informed by the intersection of the arts with non-aesthetic aspects of society to advocate for social innovation and change. She is currently an Associate Artist with The Theatre Practice (Singapore) and Programmer for Practice Tuckshop. Her practice in eco-theatre is multi-platform in nature and ranges from long-term engagements with the community to short-term commissions. One such project is Recess Time – a communal lunch advocating creative approaches to utilising rescued fruits and vegetables. Recess Time was recently shortlisted out of over 700 applications to be featured in the 2021 Social Art Award Book (Berlin). She is currently working on a commission by Singapore Writers’ Festival to create version 2.0 of her Animal, Vegetable, Mineral Food Trilogy. Her works have been shown in Australia, Japan, Shanghai, Taiwan and the U.K.
Experimental Micro-Fellowship 2021
Ferry and Xiao Ting’s Micro Fellowship project Land of Loss: WISDOMS is an interdisciplinary investigation into concepts of loss in the context of Singapore’s frenzied mixing of cultures and rapid social transformation. Focusing on intergenerational knowledge and combining social research with formal experimentation, their Micro Fellowship will uncover new artistic possibilities for this developing work.
