TEH SU CHING
What do you work as?
I write plays and screenplays, and sometimes I act.
What are some of the best parts of your work that you look forward to?
Being alone and talking to myself is great, but so is working with collaborators, crew, cast, and feeling like I’m part of a family that has come together to tell a story.
What are some interests you have outside of work?
Yoga, trying to keep up with my triathlete husband’s fitness regime. And I joined an improv comedy troupe in Shanghai called Zmack a few months ago. Improv comedy is suggestion-based theatre, so the format of each show might be the same, but the content is different, as it is based on suggestions the audience shouts out. My debut performance was in May at 789, a bar in Shanghai’s Le Meridien hotel.
What makes you excited about these interests?
It’s fun to rehearse, do impromptu scenes, and sing impromptu songs with my funny, talented teammates who come from various countries – the Philippines, France, the United States, Canada, Poland by way of the UK, Germany, the list goes on. I also joined Zmack’s Chinese-speaking team, and improvising scenes and song verses in Mandarin is hard! But it’s a good way to practice speaking Mandarin, and to expand my Mandarin vocabulary.
You’d most likely be found getting a blowout at PREP when you need to PREP for…
Jacelyn’s hen party!
