Elana Shyong is a community builder, teacher trainer and freelance workshop facilitator.

Growing up as a Taiwanese-American within the colorful cacophony of Shanghai, China, she was immersed within the extraordinary world of everyday theatre. She found all around her unapologetic diversity, transcendent storytelling, and the importance of community. For her, theatre is less about performing on stage and more about the transformation it can make within people and within spaces. The theatre that resonates the most with is the kind that takes place in people and their own individual growth. Throughout Elana’s practice, she has had the opportunity to witness voices heard, identity established, and confidence grown. She has seen firsthand how applied theatre and play can positively benefit an individual, a company, or a community. Whether it’s with your students, your team, or your clients, it’s that very growth that Elana would like to share with you.
