The Orang Collectif
Celebrates diverse cultures, languages and theatrical traditions reflecting upon
our modern society.
Our method of working is based on workshops led by one or more of the collaborators subjective to
the goals of the investigation. The material generated from the workshops are then moulded and refined to form the performance.
We enjoy working with individuals of varying disciplines and
expertise as there is always a new perspective to be challenged by and to learn from.
Natalie B. Wong
A Southeast Asian female director, performance maker and teaching artist based in London. In a
nutshell, my artistic process is collaborative, to create and share a story that matters to the audience.
My freelance experience thus far: created my own performances, directed, assistant directed,
performed, taught, production & stage managed and worked as a casual technician.
Directing and performance credits include The Tree of Objects (The Orang Collectif, Kakilang, Chisenhale Dance);
Adventures of Pipi – life in London through the lens of a queer migrant from an ex-colony (The Orang
Collectif, Camden People’s Theatre); An Odyssey: A show about HOME & IDENTITY – an exploration
of the self and the other in an attempt to define home (The Orang Collectif, Omnibus Theatre, ); The
Laramie Project (Singapore Repertory Company’s Young Company); The Nightingale (School touring show, Singapore). Assistant director credits include: The Tempest (dir. Braham Murray); Merchant of Venice (dir. Bruce Guthrie, Movement dir. Scott Graham); The Nightingale (dir. Kate Golledge).
I strive to create performances that touch the audience viscerally and champion diversity in
mainstream theatre; thus I co-founded The Orang Collectif which is a cross-disciplinary and
multicultural collective, that tells stories and explores different forms of art through the languages of
movement, music, sound, lights and text.
