Sen Ong


Keng Sen Ong is a theatre director known around the world for his innovative approach to performance and theatre making.


Often utilising his unique approach of combining both Eastern and Western performance traditions, he creates theatre that is truly multi-cultural, crossing boundaries and borders to reach the essence of what performance means today.

Ong's approach focuses on embracing differences whether that be artforms, people, nationalities or cultures, and he remains fascinated by how theatre-making can be combined with film, music, dance and visual arts to “combust together” and create a live work of art.

Ong's believes the true skills of a theatre director are not only to be a problem solver but also an expert in human communications, and he uses these skills to enable artists of different nationalities create new perspectives and experiences.
