Eva LOU, theatre artist, performance maker. Places that she has called home: Hangzhou, Middletown, Shanghai, and Amsterdam (and _ao_ao_ing ensemble for her artistic home). Originally trained in stage directing, she always finds herself on a deviated path. On the way, her attention has been caught by modes of participation, Heterotopia in urban spaces, encrypted use of languages, and the (re)production and fictionality of collective memory.

Community and social work is also an important part of Eva’s creative life. She is an active ally to the development of art education for rural children, and to the Deaf artistic community in China. She has established long-term collaborations with various nonprofit organizations, where she hosts events and workshops and weaves performativity into the process.

Right now Eva is doing artistic research at DAS Theatre in Amsterdam.
