Curator & Producer

Orlean Lai

Orlean Lai successively established orleanlaiproject and No Discipline Limited. In the role of curator and producer, she continues to initiate different forms of hybrid collaborations, inviting creative talents across disciplines to conduct cross-domain experiments together, exploring possibilities in different presentation formats, blurring the boundaries between art genres and medium.

Orlean is particularly fascinated with intermedia constructions. In her theatre productions, she likes to introduce visual artists, sound artists and music creators into the theatre, attempting to elicit works that depart from the conventional “theatre” mindset within the theatre context, thereby broadening the imagination and possibilities of the theatre. Orlean was the recipient of the Asian Cultural Council Fellowship in 2016. /
