MRS TAN is a by-product of the need for political expression, and the want to make a creative statement. She transcends boundaries that limit the art of drag by elevating the vapid, and normalizing the off-kilter. These binaries are what has created a body of workwith solid foundations, but is also open to growth.
She’s currently a part of GlobalGrace’s Artist in Residency (Philippines, 2021) and several theatre productions that tackles capitalism, sexism, and mental health issues. To further redefine the concept of drag is the ultimate mission for this young queen. After makingher mark on brick-and-mortar night clubs, she continuously explores her artistry. Her works has been featured in various international art festivals and conferences, including Home Unbound: Southeast Asian Queer Cultural Festival (ASEAN, 2021); UCLA Queer Intimacies: Community, Control, Resistance (Los Angeles, 2021); International Federation for Theatre Research Galway Virtual Conference (Ireland, 2021); NYU Performance and Screen Class (New York, 2021); fluctoplasma: FAULT LINES (Hamburg, 2021); Prague Biennale Re-Connect Art (Prague, 2021); ASEAN Youth Forum Yuwana Zine #4 (ASEAN, 2021).
