Design Statement

The main stage area of Touching My Mind consists of a platform in the center and a wall of speakers standing behind, together creating an isolated island in the theater. The wall of speakers is an embodiment of social biases, oppression, and the gossips in our everyday life—just like most of our private issues are now unavoidably exposed or even exaggerated because of the growing social media.

There’re several mini-mics installed throughout the stage, and a giant boom-mic hanging in the center. They are to create different kinds of sound, to highlight the speaking subject, to dissect the space, and to imply whoever is in the domination of “having a voice.” Also, the platform is written with prime numbers all over, covered by white paper at the beginning of the play. As the leading female character collapses, this sheet of paper is torn and discarded like how she destroys her self-expectation.

Chun An Hsieh

After graduated from The Department of Theater in Taipei National University of the Arts in 2010, and now studying the graduate program major in set design, my graduation production No Exit was selected into The Wings of Ideas-PQ2011 exhibitions (Student Section ).
After graduating from college, I cooperated with senior set designers in Taiwan as assistant, as a result, I quickly accumulate experience to sophisticate my work, especially for the procedure of larger production.
I have been working with multiple theater companies as set designers, such as Creative Society, Comedians workshop, Body EDT, Puppet & Its Double, La Cie MaxMind and EX- Theatre Asia.
In addition to set design of theater, I have worked for exhibitions' design and the art design of movies.
Now, I still continue the design work to find more possibilities and diversification in theater.
