      TAN Beng Tian  -  Puppeteer

 

 

Beng Tian is a Graphic Design diploma holder with LaSalle-SIA College of the Arts, who began her life in theatre with Toy Factory Theatre Ensemble in 1989. She has been exposed to the fine arts since the tender age of seven. 

Her theatre career reached a major turning point when she left for Quanzhou City in Fujian, China, in 1994, to undertake a one-and-a-half year intensive course in traditional hand puppetry, conducted by renowned puppet master, Li Bofen, and sponsored by the National Arts Council.

Upon her return, she became a full-time artiste, dedicating herself to children’s theatre. With the support of The Theatre Practice, she set up The Finger Players. Effectively bilingual, she has performed in both English and Mandarin productions.

Her theatre portfolio includes Dragon Quest (Toy Factory Theatre Ensemble, 1991), Lao Jiu (TheatreWorks, 1993), Descendants of the Eunuch General (The Theatre Practice, 1995) and Leng Geh-Meng (Drama Box, 1997) among others.
