Koh Hui Ling
Associate Artistic Director
Drama Box Associate Artistic Director
Koh Hui Ling is a theatre practitioner who finds meaning in the process of community engagement and the participation of non-artists in the art-making, evident in her works such as IgnorLAND of its Time (2014) and IgnorLAND of its Loss (2016). Her desire to create alternative avenues for public dialogue has led to the development of GoLi ¨C The Moving Theatre, Singapore¡¯s first inflatable moving theatre that transforms spaces into vibrant places for arts and culture. She oversees the development of Drama Box¡¯s youth engagement work and has developed a set of Drama-in-Education and Theatre-in-Education programmes for youths, teachers and adult-learners. Recognised for her contribution to community, youth and culture, Hui Ling was given in 2013 the Young Artist Award by the National Arts Council Singapore, and the Singapore Youth Award by the National Youth Council, and in 2015, Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World Award (Singapore) by the Junior Chamber International.
