About the Facilitators
Tejas is a returning facilitator for “Self Expression thru’ Theatre”, which was popular and well received back in MWF June 2021. He is a dancer and youth theatre practitioner currently reading his second year, BA(Hons) in Acting at LASALLE College of the Arts. He has received his acting, performance training and experiences from a young age, appearing in public programs and community events.
Acting has always been a form of self-expression for Tejas as well as his passion for dance. As an alumni for School Of the Arts Singapore (SOTA), he led a social service project working with seniors at Thye Hwa Kwan Moral Care Centre, using the arts as social intervention. Following that, he conducted a drama-based workshop for children from the children’s cancer foundation as part of a 3-days arts based camp. Children were introduced to the arts as a tool of expression, taught improvisational techniques and basic scene building. He has since continued to work on merging the arts and social causes projects with other like minded youths. He also aspires to bring theatre to the heartlands of Singapore, and to make it more accessible.
John is currently a philosophy major at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). He graduated with a Diploma of Applied Drama and Psychology, from Singapore Polytechnic where he developed his passion for Applied Drama. He truly believes in the power of the arts, not just theatre or applied drama, as a tool for rehabilitation and mental wellness. John is also a certified and registered Yoga Teacher since 2019.
Previously, he did an internship at Grace Orchard School, a school for students with special needs. There, he realized his passion is working with children to realize their full potential. He is someone with many interests dabbling in boxing, skateboarding and wakeboarding.
