William Teo

William Teo (1957 - 2001), a pioneer of English language theatre in Singapore, is best known for his visual style of production. As founder and director of Asia In Theatre Research Circus (later Asia In Theatre Research Centre), Teo's pan-Asian works with the company that drew from both Eastern and Western theatre traditions would distinguish Asia In Theatre Research Centre—and Teo—from the emergent wave of Singapore theatre practitioners. Teo passed away at age 43, but his in-depth research methodology had already touched many, and would go on to influence those who came to embrace his view of “total theatre” as an experience comprising both audience and performers.
