Meet ISPA's 2017 Singapore Fellowship Program participant Nelson Chia!

Nelson Chia


Co-founder & Artistic Director, Nine Years Theatre (NYT)

Nelson is a Singapore director, actor and educator who believes in patience and practice. He is the co-founder and artistic director of Nine Years Theatre (NYT), a two-time winner of both the Best Actor (2011 and 2013) and Best Director (2014 and 2015) categories at the Straits Times’s Life! Theatre Awards, and the first Singapore artist to be commissioned for a consecutive three years to present works at the Esplanade’s Huayi Chinese Festival of Arts. With its high-quality productions and its strong focus on actor training, NYT has grown to become one of the key players in the Singapore theatre scene. In 2013, Nelson created the NYT Ensemble (NYTE) with an aim to establish a company of ensemble actors who train regularly in a systematic way, in order to create works that are consistent, grounded and integral. To date, NYTE is the only ensemble of this nature in Singapore.
