Founder's Story

Introducing Qingyang Wang, Founder of Waterway Workshop

 

As an artist, Qingyang performs, writes, moves, facilitates and produces. Having started performing on stage and making theatre since she was a child, she holds an MA Theatre Practice from the University of Exeter. Her current practice features an interdisciplinary and intercultural interest, creating a poetic space for personal connections and art as healing. Her recent solo performance Journey of Whispering Dreams (2022 -), about a healing journey, is a blending of physical movement, poetic text, soundscape and Chinese Classical dance.

The idea to build a space dedicated to easy-to-access theatre workshops seeded in the spring of 2021 after experiencing a bleak theatre scene impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic (yes, as the so-called ‘Covid generation’). Getting aware of the challenges in the theatre training scene and the fact that theatre can be a ‘closed community’ through her personal experiences as an artist and extensive research, Qingyang started to develop the idea of Waterway Workshop.

Coming from a practical theatre background and having benefited from liberating training approaches, she knows about the magic that good workshops can do and is passionate about facilitating personal development.
