Ms Gloria Ang Xiao Teng
Ang Xiao Ting is a freelance theatre practitioner (actor, director, dramaturg, facilitator). Since 2012, Xiao Ting has been involved in more than 40 Chinese-language Theatre-for Young-Audiences projects. She plays ‘Roti’ in the highly-acclaimed “The Nursery Rhymes Project” and is now a co-creator of the series. She situates her practice within Eco-Theatre and makes theatre that spotlights Southeast Asian foodways, such as: Recess Time – which toured at World Stage Design 2022 (Calgary) and received an 'Honourable Mention' at #CreateCOP27 - a global open call for art that responds to the climate emergency in conjunction with COP27.
The Nursery Rhymes Project is a long-running initiative by The Theatre Practice. It preserves the classic melodies and stories that we grew up loving, while offering a refreshing modern take that can be enjoyed by generations to come. The Nursery Rhymes Project not only encourages intergenerational bonding, it also provides a wealth of materials to trigger a child’s imagination so as to enable her/him to experience language in a myriad of ways. Led by one of the cast members of the acclaimed series, “Here Comes Kaya & Roti”, this workshop uses theatre tools and techniques to show how language can be both accessible and fun!
