Yan Ru will graduate with a double degree from NUS in 2020. She’s a law major and psychology minor, but as most of her friends know, theatre is her true love. Her favourite past roles include O’Brian (1984), Ellen Toh (Mergers & Accusations) and Wendla Bergmann (Spring Awakening). She is so grateful and honoured to be working with Gateway Theatre! In her free time…pfft what free time?? She enjoys adding titles to her Netflix to watch list but never actually watching them and making travel vlogs. She thanks her family, friends and most of all, God.
Vic’s multidisciplinary practice takes form as solo works or within collaborations with practitioners from various disciplines. She aims to work internationally and embraces the transient, inconsistent nature of life. Apart from acting on stage and screen, she directs, teaches and creates for people of all backgrounds and ages. Vic has trained in Australia, Iceland, USA, UK, China and Singapore, and draws inspiration from both Eastern and Western forms. Her works challenge the definitions of live performance, through the exploration of theatrical conventions as individual forms of communication. These works are situated within spaces that achieve a sense ephemerality and immediacy through film and recorded sound, and vice versa: retaining a sense of permanence in transient forms like live performance and interaction.
Vic aims to break apart cultural stereotypes through the presentation of unheard voices and narratives. She is currently an associate artist with Bhumi Collective. Find out more about her work on https://vhickles.wixsite.com/home and @vhickles on Instagram
