GLEN GOEI

Glen’s body of work encompasses a wide range of the performing arts, covering film, theatre, musicals, parades, large-scale shows and World Expos over a twenty-five- year period. This began with his Olivier Award-nominated performance in the title role of M. Butterfly opposite Anthony Hopkins in London’s West End. It grew through his multi-award-winning tenure as Artistic Director of Mu-Lan Arts, with productions like Porcelain (Best Play and Best Production, 1993) and The Magic Fundoshi (Best Comedy, 1993), which garnered worldwide acclaim. His career reached another height with his foray into the world of film. His self-written, directed and produced picture Forever Fever premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was the first Singapore film to achieve a worldwide commercial film release. His second feature, The Blue Mansion (Best Film and Best Director, Singapore Press Holdings Entertainment Awards 2010), was a critical hit and completed a worldwide tour of film festivals, including Pusan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai and Berlin (Asian Hot Shots Opening Film).

Underpinning this has been his constant and substantial contribution to the theatre, principally as Associate Creative Director of W!LD RICE. Here, his productions have included hits such as La Cage Aux Folles, Aladdin, Emily of Emerald Hill, Boeing Boeing, The Magic Fundoshi, Blithe Spirit and his internationally-lauded, all-male interpretation of The Importance of Being Earnest (Best Production, Life! Theatre Awards 2010), which toured to the Macao International Arts Festival in May 2014. For Dream Academy, he has directed The Revenge of The Dim Sum Dollies®, The Dim Sum Dollies’ The History of Singapore, The Little Shop of Horrors and Into The Woods.
