About the Artiste / Group

Ho Lee Ching was a facilitator with klpac’s T4YP since 2015. As an alumni herself, she is highly invested to better the programme and nurture the ensemble every year. She has co-directed T4YP shows that were performed in Russia, and the Asian Youth Festival in Sabah and Singapore. She was part of the artist residency programme with Nottle Theatre in 2018 and has performed works across South Korea. Her latest work, Dead Water, was an experimental collaboration between the world of performing arts and film. An advocate for mental health and neurodiversity, her work OCD (2018) and In/Out (2019) revolved around those themes. Her movement directing works include Earthshine (2022), Rashomon (2020), and Kandang (2017, 2019), which won the BOH’s Cameronian Best of 2017 Arts Award. Towards the end of 2021, she founded Commune for Arts, a community-based art programme that aims to improve the quality of mental health in the country. She is currently a dance movement therapist in training.
