Shannen Tan

Shannen Tan Shannen Tan hails from the sunny island city-state of Singapore. She is a soon-to-be graduate and will be armed with a Bachelors in Psychology and Theatre Studies from the National University of Singapore. Art, she firmly believes, is not limited to the elites, and is created by and for anyone experiencing the human condition. Theatre is her beloved and blessedness.
She has acted in local theatre festivals such as M1 Fringe Festival, 20-something Theatre Festival and NUS Arts Festival. That aside, she opens too many tabs on her browser, plays video games, enjoys breakfast at kopitiams, and is overly obsessive with Earl Grey.
